“there is a city underneath the city / there is no city underneath this city / can you visit me again in my forgetfulness?” - “Nightshift, 2006” by Joe Scire Hall #poetry #Chicago #MAKE15 #Misfits
“Would graffiti on the snowman / stain the ground come spring, the cars / and those who resume their suicides and / shipwrecks in no time, predictably” - Rob Schlegel and Allison Titus #MAKE8 #poetry
This got us thinking of Christopher Stackhouse’s poem, “Noon” - “I have to keep thinking / about making things, whatever it is, in whatever we want to call…you know…‘art,’ as a / type of gifting.” (at The Art Institute of Chicago)
“looking out of the /rattling windows due / hard wind turned in /our direction, would / have been spooky / without you” -#ChristopherStackhouse #MAKE14 #visualculture #Chicago

“Then there’s all that was good in the past, including the headlights of passing cars filtered by hanging spruce. Things like bridges and train tracks. The rust of the world and the world of rust.” - Matvei Yankelevich #poetry #Chicago #MAKE15 #Misfits

“An open plan has a certain reminiscence about it: abandoned street platforms, torn-down placards, the cold shared apartment.”
This shot of #Chicago on a cloudy summer’s day got us thinking of Jessica Baran’s poem “Unoriginal Scene” #MAKE15 #Misfits #poetry
