Poetry is Dead – Long Live Poetry!

His mind like his life

A permanent feast of

Beauties and his sensitive

Nature the canvas

Depicts five wondrous


Alica  Nike  Viki  Louise

And Lisa

In colours attributed to

Their lives

Tinted to their characters

He’d painted intuitively.


Great stuff

His friend said

Will you not enlarge it

To a poster?

No. I intend to make it

Into a canvas

In four pieces.


Five models and

Four pieces make nine –

A holy number related

To death –

Beethoven’s Ninth

Mahler’s Ninth and

The nine Muses of Apollo.


Death of cultures.

Born means a countdown

Toward death.

Death of the Coffeehouse-

Society in Vienna.

Poetry is dead –

Long live Poetry!
