Love in the Art Museum

Abstract forms
On linen media,
Moving outside
The frames.

The limits
That tried to
Contain them.    

In a passion
Of violent

Cascading colors
To the floor

In a pool
Of mixed

Gently cooling
Into the sleeping
Of black.

One Response to “Love in the Art Museum”

  1. As I mentione elsewhere, in the mid- to late-1980s I liked to hang out in an art museum for inspiration. This is another poem inspired by the some of the abstract art there. I remember that this particular painting looked like an explosion of various colors that someone took a broad brush and slashed large swaths of black paint over it so the color only sort of peeped through.
