making art


for mhc ,jmb

he would stare in a daze

amazed at the way

she defiantly kissed him

while hailing a cab

a maddening mosaic personified

picasso’s willing mistress in dyed dreads

entwined with diamonds

street slang and senryu

he claimed her beauty by kissing lyrics into her womb

pineapple juice lips painted songs on her inner thighs

she sighed and spread the word

repeatedly he read her

committing her verses to memory.
