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
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.
