Hey Georges Seurat
Author's Note: "I wasn’t really considering a particular work of art when I wrote this, rather I was thinking about what would it be like to use Seurat’s technique of creating a visual scene using monochromatic dots of coloured paint, but instead using monosyllabic words to create a poetic scene, or soundscape, that evoked colour. I wanted to fool around with words as paint. The work shown echoes what I was striving for in the poem, more or less."
Robbie Gamble’s poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Scoundrel Time, Solstice, Slipstream, RHINO and Poet Lore. He was the winner of the 2017 Carve Poetry prize. He works as a nurse practitioner caring for homeless people in Boston, Massachusetts.
