Patient X

acrylic on canvas (16″ x 20″) circa 2005

The Return

Patient X has returned

She is not going to die

with a plastic bag over Her Head

She has Purpose, She has Writing

Scrolls & Scrolls of Writing

along with One Self Portrait

aired on The Internet

in lurid Strokes

condemning Her Miss Handlers

    I love the scissors cutting through the X followed by the glimmer of light (yellow). And how perfect, you sat it on a doyley (weird word) to be photographed.
    I am so happy to be seeing your Art Joanna!

      Sahil I just read your poem and see that it is dated on a significant anniversary for me. This makes it a significant poem. What was the Code X? Thank you very much for you Wow comment on my painting.
