SPORED: Barbara Nickel

Barbara Nickel and her poem Annular, from Domain (House of Anansi Press, 2007).

So I mentioned that I had attempted to do spore prints last week. And that the mushrooms I picked had white spores and so didn't produce a visible print.

I figured out this was likely to be my outcome as the mushrooms wilted on the windowsill, so I pulled out my camera.

So these are resultant spore prints, just ones overly um, influenced by the notion of palimpsest.

Thanks, B. I suppose I could have also put paint on the mushrooms and see what kind of 'spore print' I got, but this seemed easiest...
