Three Haikus

By Jamie Stewart

Oct 14, 2014

As part of our continuing effort to highlight artists' perspectives on The Kitchen program, we regularly invite artists, choreographers, musicians, and others to pen columns for our online blog. This week, musician and composer Jamie Stewart—whose "Metal" is currently on view through Saturday, October 18—inaugurates our occasional series of haikus by artists presenting work under the organization's banner.

here are some gloomy haikus

paint "LIFE" on the wall

become homeless and then piss

where you would have slept


the mask of the dead

not indistinguishable

from Aladdin's lamp


weep up in the sky

for you almost don't exist

moon like a bullet
