Poem: Oh Lord, I Am Painting Again

Three Tahitians, Paul Gauguin.

Up

            stairs

                        cheek

                                    flushed

                                                  black

                                                            muscle

                                                                        strong!

Down

            stairs

                        pale

                                    blue

                                              March

                                                            rot’ry

                                                                        dials

Base-

            ment

                        acrylic,

                                    rouge

                                                band

                                                            plays

                                                                        loud.

East

            in

                        silk,

                                 merc’ry

                                                 drop

                                                            slows

                                                                        blood;

West:

            new

mother’s

                                        warm

                                                  sheet

                                                            steels

                                                                        child.
