Painters' Exhalations


383
—after Yuriy Shevchuk’s Jazz Miles Davis 2



The running water of
                                              esoteric solos
distinguished
different formulations,
intimate emotions—
embracing altered
                               grace
gone in the windy breath of afternoon’s
                                                                                  cleanings.
A caressing care
con
                toured toward
                               relaying physical
                                         grandiloquence
                              garbing
reliant listeners with ornate baths of the barely visible
                striations. Distant, near the faint interpretation of nearly
lost to absence, the heard finalizes human contact, musical
bodies lying down in meadow calm
                                                             sheltered within the human
tone tongued from the reaching forth
tantara.


384
—after Eric Aho’s Long Yellow



The yellow S
                               curved
elongated etch on
tiger leech’s shimmering physique                   analogous
to the field of smiling suns
born up from the soil’s embracing threads,
gesturing.
                               Avenue of landscape
where the crawling dangle slowly
                                                             below
acrobatic avifauna
                                              launching
into saluting
formations
                               higher than the thought of cease can
ascertain
                                              thus, infinite or simile of
echoed ensuing
brandishes
                itself over into repetitive showcases
day’s author refuses to erase.


385
—after Matt Brackett’s Threshold



Door’s grand attire. Obese
opening, occasion to gander
a
specialized fortune, anti-cookie broken
fashion.
                               Couple, man and mate,
their lives a distance complicating
mathematical understanding.
                                                             Their
wants, a gnarl wishing return
of sporadic rainfall, too dry to design
clothing to clothe a moment meant of
happy alterations. Forward
                                                             step
                                                                            become.

Next,
an intertwining will befall, life
together until the door of allegorical
death
swings its breath of unraveling
exit.


386
—after Michael (Corinne) West’s Poetic Structure

                an aerial convert
                                                             once startled an uneven show                balanced
on the scale
-rise with dawn’s pet rooster:                                                             trembling

a leaf circumference (here, circumference, data of circular come backs
                                                       bound to routine the mind ceases to release)
Xeroxed
                               demonstrated same in conceptual name is revolution

                                              language returns across spectrum
totaling artistic

                                                                            landing.


387
—after Ruth Durland Horton’s Untitled Abstract



We watch the wanted blend
a created creature form itself
interpretational grace,

freed jazz assembly of birds of the congregate
arrowhead forth hitherto realized
a distant locality.


388
—after Francis Butterfield’s The Embrace



Lovers embrace tongues, body
lingo form                               of verbalizing hands, absent
revelations. Assembled, a store bought
model careful to showcase                               unaltered, true to
directions human minds define
among dissipating Eros.
