Old Man Looking at a Painting

February 21, 2010

It would have a title
like ‘hat’ or ‘bridge’ or ‘line
dividing hip
from waist’.

It wouldn’t be immediately obvious as to why.

An old man with a chrome stick
would squint at it
weight forward
eyes wide.

It would have a title
like a city
or a mirror.
A title like

‘Figure’
or ‘Pose’ or
‘Woman reaching
on a Bright Day’.

And he’d look at it
and look at it
then see it
then not see it

then see it again.
