Cupid Is Eros, Bolt of Blue

BACK of Eros in progress

FRONT of my Eros, all blue, the loosener of limbs,
A bittersweet, sly, uncontrollable creature….

The past few days I’ve been working on the back of this sculpture… paint, words, paper, glue; typing, blocking adding color.

In the end he will  hold a quiver ( being made by Boston leather artist Jessica Caruso) and two or three arrows.

Here are a few stanzas from the poem that accompanies the sculpture:

I want it!

Reach back into your quiver
and pluck the golden one with
dove’s feathers,
the arrow whose wound inflicts
love, lust, longing.

Let your quick fingers bypass the
leaden arrow winged with
owl feathers. Not for me:

It will strike the heart with complacency
contentment and a fat behind, making
a mere mortal like me reel with indifference.
