"Empire of Car Tires and Chicken Wire"

"Empire of Car Tires and Chicken Wire"
Inspired by the song, "Swan Dive"
by Ani DiFranco.  (see below)
30" X 30"
Acrylic and Mixed Media
Rusted Steel Square, Discarded Tire Tread,
Coils from a Catalytic Converter (?), Found Bailing
Wire, and Pages from the Bible (found in a mud puddle while walking the dog.)
by Suzanne Cooper Morris

"and i teeter between tired

         and really, really tired

i'm wiped and i'm wired
but i guess its just as well

because i built my own empire

out of car tires and chicken wire

and i'm queen of my own compost heap

and i'm getting used to the smell"

                                                                                              It's a really beautiful song.
