facial shift

faces that follow the


especially one will come

back repeatedly

perhaps not any longer with

the intensity

when he knew/adored/

appreciated the constant

dialogues for many years –

the artist high-point years –

the offered love and returns

the state people call:

he behaves silly like being

in love/the poet lifted up into

the clouds of his personal

nirvana/star crossed lovers

so many general descriptions

the face in red/glow of love

the face that is sad in blue

the face of a student of

aristotle in green/time to

fuse them/yet they will shift

as if placed in competition

jostling for position in the

artist’s mind

and shift and shift.
