March 2011 – “Am Not My Cage”
“Am Not My Cage” comes from a whole group of pigeon pictures in one of the final posts on the old Imaginary Bicycle called “february 32, 2011 – the end”.
I like these almost black and white pictures. Especially I like the almost of them. “Am Not My Cage” especially made me think of Rilke’s poem, “The Panther,” though I conflated its words and imagery in my mind with “Archaic Torso of Apollo” — which ends hauntingly: “You must change your life.”
