For someone who lives her

Fashion rather than figure it

Out with pencil and watercolour

She thinks of herself as a

Continual changing show of

Her self-invention.

For her companion

The poet and artist

Words are documenting his state

Of an artistic being with either

A poem or drawing.

It’s a pain – the poet felt –

To sit opposite her for a few hours

With two small coffees while she

Sips two glasses of champagne.

But the poet – castigated for

Jotting down his thoughts

Has been used to tantrics of his


It’s probably correct that she’ll

State that for him marriage is


It was always so

Only the human being is most


Even if every partner lives his

Own life for the arts.
