“THE A-MUSE-ING EMOTIONAL INSPIRATION WHICH SPARKETH POETIC IMAGINATION!” a poem a.k.a.: “Where Inspiration Lead-eths Thou Hither!” Feb. 3, 2019 (Super Bowl Sunday!)
The neighbors are worried! The family has-concern!
“What has – brought-on – his POETIC-TURN?
This turn of events! He’s-not painting much!
Has-he-lost “the-inspiration,” perhaps, lost your touch?
Yet, his poetry is ‘cycling’ at a dynamic rate!
It is NOT BAD poetry, BUT – is-it as great,
As his paintings? and sketches? and so-fine designs?”
They went to HIS house, where the-art-poet dines,
And cleans! and sweeps, with luscious strokes,
And composes rhyme – and subtle jokes!
“Oh!-Not-to-worry!” said The-Poet/Artist;
“It’s just-u-MY LOVER! YEAH! She is – the ‘tart’-est,
And-most-savory- thing- that-I -do-“know!”
When-I start a painting, my thoughts they will go,
To her eyes – and her lips – and her body Divine,
And SUDDENLY! It’s MIRACULOUS! The painting’s ‘sublime,’
But-with-her-eyes-on a candlestick – or her breasts on a post,
Of some city landscape – or a buttered piece of toast!!
So, I’ve-stopped painting for now, FOR HER INSPIRATION,
Infest-eths my mind – and-my-weird-imagination!
LIFE WITH A SOUL MATE – IS POETIC – AND TRUE,
So, for now, it is poetry – that I-simply must do!”
