Poetry

I have written short poetic texts to accompany my drawings in Z!, Amsterdam magazine for the homeless. Every three weeks, an impression in image and words of a place and time, somewhere in the city of Amsterdam. A variable mixture of prose and (concrete) poetry, depending on the situation.

Poetry
Most poetry is written to my own photography as well as to other people’s art. *)
But the last few years I started writing my own poems, without a reference to an art work.
You can find them in this album on facebook. My poems are in Dutch but I translate many of them into English. Some of them can be found on my blog ‘kijkschrijver – eye write‘ (until 2014), in this online album on flickr or in this other facebook album.
