The Poet & The Painter

Music on, lights off

Touch, a finger at a time, from this point

The poet and the painter

Watching, waltzing, guessing

Here and there

But not quite, not exactly

Fiction for wishes, covers for facts, frames and paperbacks

We all leave a little for mystery and the abstract

Same and different, two shadows, aloft and deep

Lips and hands between rainbows and vocabularies

Among patience, and grace, and defense of balance

Armed with power and weakness, with will and chance

Sorcery hypothesized

Hypnosis beatified

Sex of alphabet and pigment

Never shake, never tremble

For art and literature last

To free the god in all of us.

Dixit, pinxit

Go. Moan. Scream. Tell me if you like it. Make some noise.
