She paints her subjects with severe, exaggerated features and emaciated limbs that sometimes morph into abstraction, recalling the works of Pablo Picasso. “Some people ask if I hate the models I paint,” she says. “I say no, I don't hate them.

Michael Joyce, Twentieth Century Man

 

Here is what you think. Someone, you think, has dragged Robert’s body off the path and deeper in the woods, perhaps burying it in a shallow grave or under leaves, which would mean that he had not killed himself, unless whoever had dragged him off had wanted to put off the discovery of his body for reasons of their own, say out of horror or because they loved him.

 

Michael Joyce's poems have been published in Beloit Poetry Journal, FOLLY (LA), Gastronomica, nor/, The Iowa Review, New Letters, Notre Dame Review, Parthenon West, Spoon River Review, New Review, OR (Otis Review), The Common, and THE SHOp (Cork). Together with Gabriella Frykhamn he has published translations of the Swedish modernist poet Karin Boye in Spoon River Review, Metamorphoses, and Notre Dame Review. He is the author of The War Outside Ireland (Tinkers Dam Prress, 1992), Was: Annales Nomadique, a Novel of Internet (Fiction Collective 2, 2007), Liam's Going (McPherson and Company, 2009), PARIS VIEWS (BlazeVOX [books], 2012), and DISAPPEARANCE (Steerage Press, 2012).
