For years he tried to hang

His painting on the only wall space

Between the glazed entrance door

And an oversized window.

Then as his spouse had objected

To his selection of his contemp art

He turned suddenly numb.

Tempus fugit.

Life went on.

Here/ the artist and poet/

There/ the fashionista and spouse

At convenience.

Health problems can be a stumbling


But overcome –

Willpower’s a wonder tool.

Finally his spouse agreed to hang

One of his paintings

Due to her friend thinking that

It’s great what her other part does.

The painting in question

That had suffered with a story of

Lost and found

Had suddenly caused a positive pulse

Will it then last on this wall?

Could it fall eventually?
