City


Through this broad street, restless ever,
Ebbs and flows a human tide,
Wave on Wave a living river;
Wealth and fashion side by side;
Toiler, idler, slave and master,
In the same quick current glide.
John Greenleaf Whittier (At Washington)
This is a collage page in a journal. It is a magazine image glued on a page coloured with stamppad ink. It is smeared with acrylic paint. The lettering is stencilled with souffle pen. Then it is doodled on with pencil, souffle pen and sharpies. The poem just suited it perfectly.
