:: museum ::…

i found,

perfumed , decked with

statues and sympathetic leaflets

to no avail.

 

i saw the people here.

 

studio, still, paintings.

 

i saw the artist there.

 

the museum, past

locked behind glass,

and computerised screens,

swimming in light.

 

i saw the man here.

 

the man too tall,

so they bended him wholly

to fit,

as they did the ladies waist,

to suit the time, and hat.

 

i saw my friends there.

 

the bus, crowded  chatter,

 a quiet place,

to watch as film

 

much time to think,

 

i saw myself there

 

the window steamed

reflected way, the day.

 

who do i see there,

today
