“Floating Island 1” relocated

"Island 1" details

The second launch of “Island 1” came during my time at Ucross artist residency in northern Wyoming. My friend Neltje offered her pond, so we had a big launch inviting local residents, ranchers, artist and other visiting artists. I asked participants to bring poems by, for and about ducks. We read poems and indulged in duck and goldfish crackers and of course bottles of Cold Duck. I placed tiny tea candles on the island and on other flotsam, and we launched it about sunset. Only the ducks missed the occasion, but they would come later.
