Jeffrey Schultz

XI. No Regrets


Bare of birds
This morning
The freeway trees
Cease to sway
The gentle sway
Of freeway trees
Above idle traffic’s
Low rumble and chug.
Bare of birds,
The freeway trees’
Stock collapses;
They lose political power.
And their browns then
Grow browner,
Their greenish-browns
Browner too
Until they give in
Finally to fate,
The foreordained
Unfolding this morning
On the freeway.


Jeffrey Schultz’s artist statement:

Title of series: Fifteen Variations on Themes from Levis.
In a series of fifteen brief variations, Schultz will meditate on a number of themes–some of them poorly recalled from memory, some of them badly obscured or poorly understood–from Levis’s work.
