"This Invitation Admits Two"

Attended an art opening
last night -
ART was everywhere
but on the walls.

The sign requesting:
$3 DONATION for a glass
of CHEAP red wine -

THAT was ART

The homeless man sleeping
on the base of
LARGE metal sculpture
of a heart -

The crowd gathered around
a circle of ROCKS
scattered on the
floor -
convincing each other of
the "SHEER GENIUS" before
them -

THAT was ART

The young girl
Wearing SHORT black
Dress -
Every movement showing
A hint of WHITE skin
At the top of
BLACK-LACED stockings -

. . . . . . . . . .. now

THAT

. . . . . . was a

. . . . . . . . . . . .fucking

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..MASTERPIECE!

. . .I speak these paintings
with words and colors
. . .agony and joy
. . .the moment
. . . . . .words that I find
. . .in the night sky
. . . . . .star birds in the sun
. . .glad to see a tune
speak words found between branches
. . .between purple and yellow
flowers in thin pages lost and found
. . .poets between a paint brush
. . .and a canvas dirty feet
. . .hands long tears
. . .the song that you played
images of love and sorrow
when I see your eyes
and want to find you badly
