Art

Why should I want to contain you

Place your beauty within this cage in this frame

For is not arresting all at the essence of Art

Fragrance of imperfect freedom

An unleashing

Flight from confinement

Escape from ordinary

Exploration of sensescapes no corporeal beings roam

Wings

Logic and deduction and evidence and explanation

Too loaded to follow

A bridge deconstructed an outline made of squint

Lace and velvet satin and flowers rivulets of sky in an ocean of dream

Scenes of an unscene

Can I slip into my/your/our centre in secret moments

Touch your raw naked pulse

Feel

What it is to know truth at the intersection

Where imperfect breath and depth of life exchange promises

Without uttering a sound

But a shift

Caught drifting soft past

A presence

Something there

Let us talk of death

for that’s what’s on our minds

We can talk of all the details

examine all the different kinds

It’s on our minds

It’s on our minds

Let us talk of loneliness

what happens in between

We can revisit all the sorrow

tell each other what it means

To be alone

To be alone

Let us talk of possibility

what we meant to do or say

We can talk of all the little things

that got into our way

We really cared

We really cared

Let us talk of all the changes

how different we will be

We can write all our ideas

in a special book of reverie

So we can read

So we can read

Let us talk of love again

and what we think it means

We can talk of human theories

following our dreams

When we agree

When we agree

Let us talk of death

for that’s what’s on our minds

We can reminisce the good times

rewrite replay rewind

We’re out of time

We’re out of time

Reflection


I am a better seeder

than I am a weeder

I am a better listener

than I am a speaker

I am a better walker

than I am a driver

I am a better riser

than I am nosediver

I am more a whisper

than I am a shout

I am more a wanderer

than I am a loll about

I am a better harmonizer

than I am a charismatic leader

I am a better conciliator

than I am a first to bleeder

I am a better hider

than I am an overt seeker

I am a better laugher

than I am a weeper

I am a better reader

than I am a cleanup sweeper

I am a better old radio

than I am a new tv

I know there are a lot more things

I might as well come to be

I am growing better recognizing

what it is most likely to be me.
