Essay: Carry On

Your people want to make a statue
In your honor
What will it be made of?
What victory will it commemorate?

Mine shall be made of marble
My German Shepherd Rosie and me
Like Michelangelo’s David
In its base
The words of Deadwood‘s Swearengen
Sally fucking forth

Elizabeth G Fagan is a writer and artist who resides in southeastern Wisconsin—a place she calls Lake Michigan’s Left Coast. She’s endured the curse of being a writer since attending a private arts high school in Connecticut, where the bad habit was encouraged. She also became a photographer at that high school. She spent all the time she could in the school’s darkroom, creating black and white images from film. Alas, a second bad habit acquired.

Fagan is passionate about the natural world and its creatures. She highly recommends the work of Chicago-based nature photographer Mark Swanson.
