The first two drawings were done in response to this  poem
by Suzanne U Clark

S
unday Service at the Home for the Incurables

Idiots
Misfits
Drooling fools
And spastics:

Forgive my wretched poise
and tidy clothes
and manners acquired
from much church
and so little rubbing
into your palsy and piss
and men asleep from birth
living in cribs.

Undo
me
dear
incurables singing
"My Jesus" in slapstick,
your hands with minds
of their own
shaking praise.

Moving in your midst
a tender light,
a love unkempt

And blind waits on you
singly, touching
each ragged grief, each

Buried rage and sings
your circus hymns
with reverence,
as one who well knows
the pograms of fools.

Touch me, my gargoyle
heart, and make
me
crow.
