“The Prosthetic”

Posted on • Words by • Art by

Collaborators’ Q&A: Artist Elizabeth Terhune: …But this poem is a nugget of feeling and image and it stayed with me. I was particularly taken with its modesty and its quietness. It seemed to favor and respect a kind of anonymity, saying that life is deeply felt, but mostly privately so. Poet Joy Icayan: The feeling of oneness of the hand and leg. They were done in the same color and same strokes that you can almost feel they’re part of the same entity. I was really pleased by this.

Poet Joy Icayan works as project assistant for a government agency. She lives and writes in the Philippines. She has a degree in psychology and does freelance writing and research for several companies. Artist Elizabeth Terhune has exhibited widely throughout the United States and recently had a one-person exhibition at the Lake George Arts Project, Lake George, NY.
