One of Charles Marchant Stevenson's last major works, "The Poet and the Artist" is a spectacular large-format double portrait of jazz poet ruth weiss and California artist Paul Blake. In the poem "2009" (below), ruth weiss expresses in words the union which Stevenson captures visually.

Everything changes, but each of these works of art stands testament to a special time and a relationship in which the whole was greater than its parts.

2009

out of the cave
set sail from the I-LAND
give a hand up the ladder
wave bye bye
to I-SO-LATION
link to elation
cast off negation
cast off from the I-LAND

it's a one
it's a two
it's a three
home free
sing into the wind

no more a toy
be a live girl & boy
be a live boy & girl
in the curl of the wave
out of the cave
sing sing sing into the wind
make space
give air for the fire from the heart

2009 ruth weiss
