Somewhere East by Robin Stout

A Patron at Mitchell's Bar in Lambertville, NJ 2011

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.

Presented by the Philadelphia Theatre Company @ the Suzanne Roberts Theatre.
Broad and Lombard Streets
Philadelphia, PA
Through November 13.
