The Lion, The Lamb
11 x 14 inches
acrylic on cardboard

The difference between your right
hand and your left
Discreet is to be
individually, separate
The size of a pea, and a frozen pea
The green, a good color for a clover

There's not much you need to know other
than that there are
Church bells that ring every hour, on the hour
And five ways to cut
a tomato over time.

My grandma called March a lady,
I don't disagree

Julia Callis is an artist living in Detroit. Callis attended the University of Michigan with a focus in printmaking, but has since gravitated towards painting. She has shown her work across the midwest, most recently at Detroit’s Popps Emporium and in Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit’s “Dual Visions” exhibition. She makes work out of her studio in Hamtramck, Michigan.

Founded in 2020, Three Fold is an independent quarterly based in Detroit that presents exploratory points of view on arts, culture, and society in addition to original works in various media, including visual art, literature, film and the performing arts. We solicit and commission contributions from artists, writers, and activists around the world. Three Fold is a publication of Trinosophes Projects, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Three Fold recognizes, supports, and advocates for the sovereignty of Michigan's twelve federally-recognized Indian nations, for historic Indigenous communities in Michigan, for Indigenous individuals and communities who live here now, and for those who were forcibly removed from their Homelands. We operate on occupied territories called Waawiiyaataanong, named by the Anishinaabeg and including the Three Fires Confederacy of Ojibwe (Chippewa), Odawa (Ottawa), and Bodewatomi (Potawatomi) peoples. We hold to commit to Indigenous communities in Waawiiyaataanong, their elders, both past and present, and future generations.
