Grand Central, Track 23

I forgot to tell you it’s almost time to go.
The sun has distilled its particular worn essence
And the glittering trout is flipped on the bow.

A man asks me what time it is. I don’t know.
I have emptied my purse and wept in the presence
Of onlookers. I forgot to remember to go

Before eleven, when the steely arrow
Shot swimming to its underneath, tense
As a stream of salmon in reverse below

The laureled, relentless clocks. The sceptered row
Of columns dreams one o’clock, immense,
Inviolate. What time is it? I don’t know.

This story concerns the night I tried to go—
Though many times I flopped into the silence
Of orange plastic seating like onto the bow

Of a lonely ship, and felt my breathing slow.
The frail, retreating stand of columns prevents
The clocks from telling me time and time again to go.

At my feet, a glittering trout swims past the bow.

Lizzie Skurnick

Show us a set of your 20x200 picks and win a signed copy of Jorge Colombo’s book

Last week we noticed just how much 20x200 art there is floating around on Pinterest and Svpply, two top-notch websites for sharing the things you love. When we stumbled upon collector Alison W.’s set called Favorite 20x200’s's (pictured above) we were over the moon! She writes:

I am a 20x200 addict. I covet and subversively purchase pieces, then hide them in plain sight from my husband in their delightful brown kraft envelopes. You should visit the site and see what I mean. I’m a sucker for art.

We’re constantly sorting and shuffling our art archive by different criteria: objective or otherwise, but it was a treat to see what we do from a collector’s perspective (that’s you!). We’d love to see your sets, too: show us what you own, what you want, or invent an entirely new category.

As a thanks for sharing, we’re giving away five signed copies of Jorge Colombo's delightful new book New York. To enter simply put together a set of 20x200 art on Pinterest or Svpply and send us the link via Twitter or Tumblr.

Can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeves, collectors!

Check out more of Jorge’s work on 20x200 and see his show Night Windows at Jen Bekman Gallery through December 23rd.

New on 20x200: Greene and Spring by Jorge Colombo

10”x8” ($20) | 14”x11” ($50) | 20”x16” ($200)    

In the newsletter, Jen writes: 

While I was airborne, Jorge was paying a visit to 20x200 HQ, where he told Sara that he was particularly pleased these are the first two images that we selected for editions from his forthcoming book, a pair whose presentation was informed by his (considerable) efforts to perfectly sequence said tome. We’re pretty darn pleased ourselves—proud to be co-presenting the forthcoming title with our friends at Chronicle Books and cooking up all kinds of fun in conjunction with its arrival online and in the real world. 

Greene and Spring is also the first of Jorge’s editions to have previously been published on the cover of The New Yorker. From phone to magazine to fine art edition—and soon to be bound up in the pages of a bona fide (and awfully good-looking) book—Greene and Spring and Queens travel well.
