    On t(his) canvas
    I lay painted over

    I couldn't tell
    whether it was
    done by the
    brush of his
    red thoughts or of my
    own indigo mood

    Yet the stroke of
    genius was
    invigorating
    and for him I sat
    perfectly still

    gazing at a frame
    that consumes me

    molding a mask
    of dreams that
    he would wear
    tomorrow with
    graffitied ideas
    directing his wayward
    sway

    As art in his
    galleria he draws
    me to him
    ...in the colored confines
    of a pictoral mind
    where he and I
    are imagined

    I am drawn...

    Drawing blanks

    Staring at Reflections

    Reflecting
    Reflecting
    Reflecting
    Reflecting
    Reflecting

    I sit and think...
    and reflect

    this may be the
    best thing
    in love we've ever
    drawn....
