sobbing wishing they were modigliani...

A night of a beaded lamp
Rapids
Torrents
All the tears
The
Painters
Sobbing
Wishing
They
Were
Modigliani
Precisely the beauty

oak bluffs...

Victorians & cottages
All the peach colors
In a semicircle across the park from the ocean
The bandstand
Where Holly sang
Where all the angels all the peach colors
Sang
The painters
The poets
Potters
&
Preachers across the park from the ocean sang

portrait of a woman in front of matisse's window...

French crayons
Smooth
Tea & fingertips
A crepe
A raspberry
A sigh
Smells
&
Wisps
In front of Matisse's window -
A curl,
A curl

deep soft blue (azul)...

Deep soft blue
The great blue
A broken & dilapidated
Door
Locked
Painted chips
Peeling
Worn
&
Flouting,
Wonder
& decoration
Beauty
Too
&
There a peach blossom alone;
Wonderfully
The
Door
Unlocked

a frown...

On the bay
A frown
Can come
& a frown can go
A snap in the air & a snap in the woodstove
Trials
&
Hopes
Tonight I will dream of a purple tree
Joy
& grace on the bay
& ruggedness

the tree sweet too french crayon...


sweet too...

The tree
Down the hill
There's
Blues on a street near the river
All
The
Things
You
Are
Sol la far doe
Saxophones
&
Tap shoes
Paddle wheelers grizzle face gamblers
The tree
Dance
Hall
Girls
At Bayard's jambalaya hot! hot! jam!
Blues-
Land
Lou's-
Land
The tree
Jazz
High ceiling hotel room looking down on French iron
Gates
A loose fitting street painter
&
Bricks
Sweet
Rock,
Marciano
49 & 0
&
The tree
I came to New Orleans when I was 15 to play jazz
On Bourbon Street
Grizzle face gamblers
Black iron fence
&
The tree sweet too

dylan thomas welsh poet (1914-1953) french crayon...


the writing shed...

Long tracts
Of
Flower
On the island
Under the poetry tree
The writing shed painted green
In a table in red
In a slat back chair
Crumpled paper strewn
Verse strewn
Words strewn
Love strewn
The wall boards screech in the east wind
The
Oil
Light
Flicks
In the window in front of the sea
Freezing
Rain
Outside the Hotel Lord Byron
Verse strewn
Words strewn
Love strewn
Under the poetry tree
In the writing shed
