The Linnet´s Wings “THE LINNET´S WINGS “ ARCHIVE :2008 Narratives of New Netherland 1570-1970 by Sean Farragher EXCERPT “I am a viridian swell and a vermilion tempest. I am surly beast and have will to rectify murder; my death and other happenstance makes for irony with miniatures painted without sight in a golden locket never opened and not lost memories of those centuries before whatever instant diseased and bent with pock-marked face to -- how anger stalls without any pleasure or even the protest of strangled fowl. You can watch my stance without eyes and make me move without legs as I am only flood and tempest unbounded by schemes set down as blasphemed physic and truth.” –John Colman (1585-1664) 52
