De Kooning Revisited


White marks on de Kooning women
Fragments of the fragile symbol
Redefined, undefined and lonely
I see her grafted identity
Her post modern womb
Outside of the testosterone maelstrom

Ethnic democratic white wash
Way into the soul we must go

We are the trampled grass
We eat the fodder of femme fatale
Cleansing the filthy image of progress
She is my sweet island buried in deco
Mushrooms grow like Alice in a hole
Run away from the machines of dread
I have crawled out of a clean modern hole

Image of woman in a nuclear biological war
She hears the drills in her soft hair
She cooks her biogenic mess
She is stoned like a pharmaceutical star
I can't touch her tummy tuck kiss
No fallout shelters no more
I'm in love with a tear

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
