Complicated Viewpoints

when I observe

a work

from Picasso

or any artist

~

first and foremost

I always try

open my perception

to the artwork

~

even though

I love Picasso’s imagery

freedom, imagination, interpretation

shapes, colour

~

I have a distorted bias

within myself

against the man

but

a deep respect

for his artistic vision

~

I

become

the

fractured

cubist

portrait

Human Sculpture

human sculpture

dynamic poses

(pauses)

moments between stimuli

spirit and motion

solid to liquid to gas

~

we’re formless shapes

smiles spreading across cheeks

spontaneous expressions

dancing

distinct random patterns

~

abstract pleasure

measuring simple movement

zig zagging

bottoms up

this too shall pass
