On My Poetry Empty
PostSubject: On My Poetry   On My Poetry EmptyFri Feb 03, 2012 8:42 am

I am a child playing with finger-paints,
plopping blobs of multi-colored paint,
which runs and clumps onto the canvas,
making my attempts,
to depict what I see and feel,
into murky shadows of a world too crudely rendered.

Incomprehensible swirls,
of my chubby little hands,
struggling,
with mindless tenacity,
to paint,
blurry, evanescent, unrecognizable details,
as senseless as the death throes,
of a writhing salamander,
half drowned in a paint can by a sadistic child,
and thrown onto a canvas,
to create art,
through the stains of its death throes,

A child,
trapped,
in a middle-aged body,
staining with artless hands,
unrecognizable forms,
in a pointless effort,
to render,
some meaning,
on the canvas,
of his life.

From Of Pain and Ecstasy: Collected Poems (C) 2011 Victor D. Lopez
