On the shore, in a dither
Unseen fugitives
Holding steady
I thought I saw you there
With a certain sense of security, the swamp wallaby paused and took in his new surrounds
No one but you and me

A fortunate leap
All became clear by moonlight

Gracia Haby, Holding steady, 2011, lithographic offset print


In this series of eight postcard collages made into prints you will meet a Buffalo in Vancouver’s Stanley Park, an Asiatic black bear as you boat about in Cambridge, and possibly catch sight your twin in the rough seas of Hastings and a Wild cat holding steady. You’d be advised to hold onto your hats, should one at present be atop your head.

Several of these postcard collages can be found in the zines, My dear, don’t worry my deer; Looking and almost never finding; It was quite a wilderness; and That in the moon did glitter.
