(Yves Tanguy, Indefinite Divisibility, painted in 1942). Last night, Canary dreamed a dream of a Tanguy landscape. Barbs that climbed the sky, a hazed sky. Beware the mirror's reverse, the world behind the mirror.
I am Daniel A. Rabuzzi. Lobster & Canary explores fantastical/surreal fiction, poetry, and visual arts, fairy tales, oral epic, & children's lit. CZP (Toronto) published my novels *The Choir Boats* (2009) and *The Indigo Pheasant* (2012). I live in an enchanted city called New York, with my wife and soul-mate, the artist Deborah A. Mills, along with the requisite two cats. Deborah & I design & create art together; our first collaboration was shown in 2012 at The Observatory (Gowanus, Brooklyn).

The lobster in the header is from Abraham van Beyeren's "Still Life with Lobster and Fruit" (1650s)--the original painting is at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (NYC). The canary above is by Carl Fabritius (1654)--the original hangs in The Mauritshuis (The Hague). My understanding is that I am using the former image by virtue of fair use, and the latter because it is in the public domain.
