Scrolling through Jeremiah Roundtree’s Instagram that has newly graced the social media platform, I immediately get the feeling that I am a voyeur of an extreme talent.

Destruction & Deceit

on rare days

when I end the eclipsing

of my own humanity

with that that is not

or maybe is less

of too much peace

a semblance of deconstruction

brick by brick

discarded mortar

dissipated dissatisfaction

I will make even

the most blessed

regret his presence

through realm warping shrieks

awakening disjointed logic

of failures and truth

carried through

deoxyribonucleic acid

proving fallacies

of greatness

relayed through eons

of oral tales

that were mumbled

carried like rushing water

tides of blood lines

wrought of disappointments

 

find shelter

do not risk

your presence here

Artist Jennifer Shepit

Artist Jennifer Shepit resides in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada where she constructs other galaxies with her bare hands, a bit of paint, and universes of imagination, so much so that I found myself sending poetry over to her to request her visual representation of my work. When I laid eyes on this piece of art, I love it so much that I am not even sharing a photo of it in this post as it is the part of a larger project that I cannot wait to reveal. I will say that it is more beautiful in person than it was in the image that she sent me upon completion, and I am stingily am holding onto the painting only parceling out glimpses to others as though it is a secret lover.

 

Please go view and purchase some of her work. You can view her page at Instagram at @jennifershepit and click here for her Etsy.
