"The text is a reassembled collection of words and phrases taken from Georg Trakl's collection of poetry titled Song of the West (translated by Robert Firmage).” This is not a Trakl poem, but rather Ingmire’s visual interpretation of Trakl’s verbal poems. It is Calligraphy and Poetry in collaboration. The blacks, greys, and deep blues explode at the end in a splendor of yellow & orange.
