Somewhere East by Robin Stout

Somewhere East by Robin Stout
A Buick carries Carl down a highway lined with porches.
Past the dead farms and dead grass the cows only pretend to eat.
Past the porches where sit men who complain of sleeves in August sit women who sit and complain of lead clouds,
who watch for storms and for mail.
This town grows old with heat, the wide planks of barns bleached to pale conversation.
And somewhere east to Chicago, even the dogs have fled.

Rothko: Red @ The Suzanne Roberts Theatre

I paint very large pictures. I realize that historically the function of painting large pictures is painting something very grandiose and pompous. The reason I paint them, however – I think it applies to other painters I know – is precisely because I want to be very intimate and human. To paint a small picture is to place yourself outside your experience. However you paint the larger picture, you are in it.

Red Presented by the Philadelphia Theatre Company @ the Suzanne Roberts Theatre. Broad and Lombard Streets Philadelphia, PA Through November 13. For information: 215-985-0420
