POST 186: unearthly movement, painting, poem, Maine, South Carolina

by Carol Bass


why would you paint something like that?
why, I can…. the dark director
deep inside says

listening exploding
with the light

not another landscape
another world
a pause outside of time

how bout a 4″ x 6″
so easy less lifting

those worlds inside you
mixing with the waves
our yearning to know

is the truth

the only answer
