His vision, cutting designs into time,
Nicking and notching his massed reflections,
Tossing a net of his mind's perceptions
Inside and outside. A potted plant shoots
Green leaves into a space itself creates.
A newborn blue that penetrates the soul
Ignites a white curtain breathing against
A wall. Shutters bank the falling light off
Statuettes, stopping time, where nothing is still.
Opulent nudes flank twined arabesques.
Goldfish swim the primal waters of life.
A tender snail hoists its heavy house
And creeps into the sharp sweetness of life.
Nude dancers clasp hands and whirl around the world,
Creating the space they make themselves.
