I want to do it now   old door doesn’t close right


Three pennies in a urinal   full-moon tonight


Before the universe   not nothing to piss you off

college town –

the same intersection

twenty years later


another driver

singing along

with my station


bent over

nearly to the ground

“No Stopping” sign

in a bucket –

only its eyes


Window frost –


the Milky Way


Before we kiss

wrapping my gum

in a maple leaf


Moving day –


the bird house


“Follow your bliss”

I tell him

knowing I’m not it









Anthony J. Pupello on Marlene Mountain

September 18, 2018 § Leave a comment


I had the opportunity to meet Marlene Mountain at a group show she was participating in at New York University. She was really something special. At first, I think I puzzled her. But when she recognized my name, it was as though we were old friends. Her pieces were something else as well. What was astounding was that Grey Art Gallery is so staid and Marlene and her work are certainly not. I was sort of surprised she showed there – but very happy as it gave me a chance to meet her. When I asked if she would be speaking the next day, she said “they wouldn’t let me speak – they’d tie me up!”
