Brophy: Harvest

Under the eyes of an angry God
We stand We fall
We fall We stand
Under the hand of angry man

From a small series of poems I wrote on artwork from the Portland Art Museum. Michael Brophy is a Portland artist and his painting Harvest, for which I wrote this poem, is a moving depiction of deforestation. I tried to find a link and apparently he has a new work out that is more popular, but if you can find it it's worth looking at for a while.
