Glimpses of Things Related to Each Other by Leah Lubin. Today, Saint Patrick’s Day, enjoy the poetry and art of Leah Lubin.
My British side I keep well hidden,
although the accent comes out occasionally.
My American self, here since 1979,
dominates my life style.
Part hippie intellectual
actually means that I am a British Mod
who came to America to be a hippie
but missed the whole scene by many years.
So, I settle down to be an artist and a writer.
Which is good because it all started out in
London, England where I studied lit and art.
But, it is now my American self that expresses it freely.
So, here I learned a new term that might suit me best.
My short poems are my beats.
My art is my modern expression of self.
