The idea for this post came while watching an episode of Luther. In one scene, Luther has spread crime photos across the floor. A detective enters, asking why the mess. Luther says he’s using the David Bowie decoupage technique. (I’m roughly paraphrasing, so forgive any inexactness.)
Ah-ha! I thought. The old William S. Burroughs cut-up technique! Was Bowie really a practitioner?
I ran to the internet to verify that Bowie was, in fact, a cutter-upper, and then to see his application, if possible.
Overwhelmed by stress? Why not take a moment to read haikus (including one of mine) at ThreeLinePoetry.com?
My piece is in current issue #41, and reads:
Courage is no mask
Fabricated by the mind
But the heart’s whisper
Very grateful to TLP for including my work!
