After "After Lucien Freud" by Amy Hollowell, posted 21 July 2008
Ancient in the unabbreviated shadows
Naked. Shorn. Ochre.
Dirt in place, or placemats where we are
thick cushioned folds of graced flesh.
What draws him to
Full frontal reconfigurations,
as seen through primacy, mercantile.
Always consider the indispensability of custom,
body’s ancient remainders
barren with motion, language
as it is crafted.
To unmask the implicit sky?
