How Do You Do Bobby Blue

Alix Villanueva
Storytelling as Pollination. 

Handmade paper sheets with botanicals and text transfer in an embroidered cloth cover, with a set of handstitched handler’s gloves. 

In oil, they sit, my leaves
Inchmeal leach of green onto gold
To make a thick sage-slurry,
Potent enough to palliate.

It’s slow, all this,
But healing takes its own sweet-time.

Commissioned by the POD, Coventry, for 'Scratch the Surface': Mental Health Arts Festival. It was displayed at the Scottish Poetry Library during the Edinburgh Festival 2019.
