lacking ink does not mean blank

impressions from above leave a trace

under how many sheets

no authors to thank

 map out a life on a face




my love is a blend, a mélange

an artfully beautiful muddle

infused, enthused

head strong heart strong

paying pleasure for attention back double




elements laid out -  a remote point of view

a casual inventory, a glance

the result does not follow

the equation’s not true

that such a pure work of art falls by chance




this symphony was built from earlier songs

not composed from a raw field of sounds

life built on life

a synergized throng

of the you then to the you you are now
