Home/Faculty News/Faculty News: Matthew Zapruder in The Paris American

Matthew Zapruder has new work in the latest issue of The Paris American…and, as usual, he’s blowing minds. Here’s a bit from “Your Eyes Are The Color Of A Light Bulb Floating In The Potomac River”:

Just when it is time to say goodbye

I think I am finally understanding the light bulb

but not milk or NAFTA or for that matter paper money

let’s not even get into my stovetop coffee maker

I don’t even get how this book is fastened or why that orchid

seems happier or at least its petals a little whiter

when it is placed right up against the window

or how certain invisible particles

leave the wall and enter the cord and somehow make the radio

make the air become

Moonlight Sonata or Neighborhood  #3
