The Philosopher
mixed media assemblage
marble head, caged in steel & wood
by Dale Copeland, 2010

We are tied to the world, caged between the ocean and the sky.
Only thought can break free.

My mother told me "Nice people don't talk about sex or religion or death.
Our passions, our comforts, our hopes, our fears.
What else is worth talking about?
