painting #147



60″x40″ canvas


with more violet orchard magenta

than meets the camera

i realize

so close to disaster sits magnificance.

i realize

I’m a surgeon

with a paint brush.

Some patients are goners

before even seeing me.

Some have all the potential

in the world;

1second the performance

romantic and visceral…

with mental gibber accolading oneself to floods.

the next

flat lines

and not the good flat lines either

Maybe I went too far.

But I know far is where the good stuff is.

Problem is

so is that really really bad

stuff too.
