Bare Bones

 

..

This poem is drawn
……(and quartered)
in charcoal smudge
and the sludge of
lily pad glee. Stretch

her in pencil-thin
lines, out-of-time
strings, the long lost
things at the bottom
of your artcase. Place

her cloud-shy in a
magic marker sky,
and just try and tell
her she’s not quite
real. Feel

her flow, traced in
lace and grace and
the glow of that gold
-leaf moon. Swoon
to the smells and spells

of turpentine and oil
-paint, palette ready, brush
poised. Make some noise
as she steadies her outline,
pulls on skin, begins.

Day 21. Because even when April’s crazy, we poem

    Easy, natural rhythm. I’d like to hear this at a spoken-word.
