OUTFITTINGS

June 8, 2017

Some beers and some whiskeys for chores, and morning correspondence.

Soon, off for driver’s licence and all the taxes they’ve attached to it.

I want my immigrant outfittings,

Rosewater holds my hair.

Legal photos are important these days.

Though no great grandchild will glimpse at me and try to recall all

I’ve maybe wondered.

 

I tried to maintain straightfacedness

“Photography..

Is  taking  paintings’  places

At our public art palaces.”

Said a sad man in line, up ahead,

                                 .

“Imaginably..

Detail  has its beauty..but the thing

Is..A twin image is less interesting.”

This made me mention McLuhan,

Not the man, but the manuscripts I read.

                                       .

It amazes me how I heart the hazy art,

The work we co-create;

The “unfinished”  poem we read our way

Then we’re on our way to one ending,

I know this exquisite piano piece

Close yr eyes, you visit new  skies, and no ending,

The abstract film, the blurry print..

All a happy accident..that hits you.

                                          .

Oh we went on and on,

This man in line and me,

“The Wisdom of Impressionism”

We agreed it would indeed

Go on and on and on.

It’s intentionally

Ill defined.

A painter puts on a mark

Three steps back

Have a looksee

Advance three steps

Add some more  to see

Three steps back

P.O.V.

One two and one   dip and dab

one two  one  three

Stand back and see

Wedding Dance


W E D D I N G D A N C E
(For Connor & Yunet)

In a clutch
So strong
It wouldn’t be wrong
In a gypsy love song.

In a new whirl,
Matching steps on
To a new turn,
Outwards, yet no words will
Work, to fill
Between
One.
