The Midway Theater Box Office Becomes Outsider Poetry
My first summer living in Downtown Rockford everything seemed to become a poem. And one theme seemed to leap out at me: the unintended meanings of when words and images are combined. In this case of the Midway Theater box office I have guided the meaning of the piece to fit my theme, but in this Chamber of Commerce banner I saw dozens of time crossing the State Street bridge that summer the creator made the association themselves.
