Abstract Magazine International | A Matter of Life and Death by Alex Ewing
Abstract seeks fine art in all forms that engages with both the crises and joys of our shared human condition. We seek art that engages the edge of now; we seek to explore a future forward zeitgeist with a respect for the gifts of the past. We are looking for both established and emerging artists across a broad range of genres. Our criterion is quality.

A Matter of Life and Death by Alex Ewing

A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH

A cry into the world

One out

Sliding in sliding out

Faces behind the glass

A naming

An identification given

The answer yes

The statement no

 

A blue blanket

Yellow tape

Liquid flowing down

Pain

Screaming

Elixirs

Ailments

 

A call light

A light calling

A prognosis

Strange hands

 

A moment says

Caution

Congratulations

Someone somewhere

Is giving a high five

And a cigar
