Interview with Pandit (From Think or Smile)

“Everyone sees and interprets art in a different manner. I don’t think anyone ever really sees the same thing. If that is the case, then it just isn’t that interesting….I believe everyone takes what they see or create and interprets it completely different than what anyone else might relate it to. That to me is very special. Its yours. If no one else has that same interpretation, its your own belief. You control it.” – Pandit

The End of Summer

Because the summer’s almost over.

Bob Hicok – Epithalamium

A bee in the field. The house on the mountain

reveals itself to have been there through summer.

It’s not a bee but a horse eating frosted grass

in the yawn light. Secrets, the anguish of smoke

above the chimney as it shreds what it’s learned

of fire. The horse has moved, it’s not a horse

but a woman doing the stations of the cross

with a dead baby in her arms. The anguish of the house

as it reveals smoke to the mountain. A woman

eating cold grass in Your name, shredding herself

like fire. The woman has stopped, it’s not a woman

but smoke on its knees keeping secrets in what it reveals.

The everything has moved, it’s not everything

but a shredding of the anguish of names. The marriage

of light: particle to wave. Do you take? I do.
