the art of You… [POEM]

drawing conclusions
painting pictures in my head
sculpting life without material
using my memory instead

while discovering
the art of you

there are very fine lines
and shaded areas
contrasting
yet complimenting
far too many pages,
to have in hand
as you spread your canvas
across my land
in an abstract form
of hard colors blending
with the softer palette
while earth tones choose
in charcoal
to ones own interpretation,
used
a season of pastels,
and angles
hues
the color of your value
a mixture,
of yellow, and blues
your reason for being
vivid, with every view
in forms for specific need
appraising your worth
in real life, true
whether pencil or paint
nothing is erased,
my gallery awaits,
no visit is refused
no material is a waste
every context is a clue
you exhibit as its new
in the moment,
as proof
that imitation is
no such thing
for flattery serves like
chalk on sidewalks
when I’d rather be
graffiti on trains
as opposed to anything else,
I’d rather be the stains
blaring reminder,
the glass in between the pane
custom, by request
specifically no prints,
I want nothing the same
for the original, I will pay
as or in, -surance
to keep you safe
as you, in turn, appreciate…

drawing conclusions
painting pictures in my head
sculpting life without material
using my memory instead

to then create
the art of you.
