  • ART AS PASSION RECOUNTED


    Blue gray overcast
    and gentle drizzle

    on narrow street
    and wild weed
    of remnant swamp.

    The mind is turquoise
    and the heart is purple

    and the lovers keep their porch
    and eat
    sandwiches, and drink
    their rich thick coffee
    or smoke, and muse
    mentally
    stories of the bygone beat

    beyond these chimneys
    of late Winter.

    We, of such a sky,
    have passed the torch
    of pure adventure

    and more easily recline
    each to each
    with our own art

    ...the days good work
    is what we do
    while rainy moments
    pass, and enter
    into skies
    gray blue.
