Since July 1999 there is Tara, mix-retriever, gigantic nose. After 14 years she still looks at me with eyes that tell: I'm loyal as a dog can be, and what do you have for me? Further there is Roef, summer 2000 from shelter, mix (pics will follow) and cats in sequence,

Looking - the other side of the road


"if you want to know your looks / you better stand in front"



no other creature approaches / like a cat

The Audience


"on the way from one place / to another, we rested in a parque / with peacocks / some of which were white"

What way (out of climate crisis)?

Our dog Tara visited the Manifesta-9 in Genk (Belgium) /  and the old mine buildings behind. This dog was able / to take her own picture / with self-timer.

This hand


This hand: This hand may stroke / or strike. // This hand may care / or wound. // This hand may summon or reject. // It may compliment / or write you to hell.                     

Born out of foam


Born out of foam: Long ago, / it is said, / the goddess Diana was born / out of foam of the sea. // How true / must this be / since even today / hunting dogs / perform the same act. (Scheveningen beach, NL, May 123th, 2014)

Tara loose


Tara visits the Manifesta in Genk (Belgium, 2012) and the old mine buildings behind: her picture with self-timer

Tara's eyes-1


Seven months old / Tara killed a doe / with her brother Boris / upsetting Jeanine / also visible as www/ / and the question remains / how can she / with such eyes. / The flower / stems from a fuchsia.

Tara eyes-2


At this moment / you see Tara think / how the miraculous locomotive / brings hares to turn / at right angles / and how to intercept. / Aye, these eyes / tell so much

Tara's eyes-3


And now / you see / that Tara / has absolutely / no morbid thought. / The spirit of the spectator / mirrors itself / in her eyes.



Abel / takes seamless/ the place from Tara / with the obvious ease / with which cats / take the world / in their possesion. // Alas, we heard today from a neighbour / after searching for two days /  that Abel (11-05-2008 / adopted from a shelter at 3 months of age / five years later / was hit by a train / August 24th. / We. Jeanine and I, / will miss this buddy.

Queen of Sintra


The Queen of Sintra / has been charmed / by the tomcat of the neighbours / with the rightful name / of Uncle Whiskers. / Now she lies there / as can be expected / with a fat belly.
