in which we all kiss something secretly

Their first collaboration began twenty years ago, when visual artist Maria Mercedes Martinez, put a cigar box with ten little drawings outside poet Denver Butson’s apartment door (the two lived next to each other on the top floor of a Brooklyn Heights apartment building). Butson took the little drawings and paired them with words — some from previous poems, some randomly chosen from notebooks, some written just for the drawings themselves — and added ten new sets of words on the same-sized pieces of paper and then returned the cigar box to the front of Martinez’s door. This back-and-forth continued for a few weeks, each time with the recipient responding to the ten new pieces and then adding ten additional pieces to the box. When they finished they had dozens of paired drawings/poems, which they called the cigar box project, a project which has been exhibited a few times since then, and always returned soon after to its original cigar box. in which we all kiss something secretly is the third collaboration of these friends and artists over the past twenty years.
