face out

Marble turned out to be a wonderful medium for rendering what all sculptors strive for: that is to make the piece seem carved from the inside rather than chiselled from the outside.

(Mark Cartwright, from the Greek Sculpture page at

Old symbols collapse,
forming black holes

A yard strung with plastic Jack-O-Lanterns,
some filled with poinsettias

Pictures of dolls
and of Hilary Clinton
taped face out
over the windows

(Rae Armantrout, Collapse, from The Pretext, 2001)
