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.
Life went on.
Here/ the artist and poet/
There/ the fashionista and spouse
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?
