Scratch the surface for metaphor

what for?

finding what?

Every abstract painting is a self portrait

if you painted it

or not.

You’re a splash of paint

thrown into the waters of the canvass

and though Jackson Pollock called his mess, ‘Autumn’

it’s winter here

and there you are

and here I am in our art gallery


looking at abstracts of you.

And the makeup you left behind under my sink

is worth more than anything hanging in either Guggenheim.

    Expensive makeup! Pricey girlfriend! (Just kidding). Loved the sort of dancing-in-the-dust-motes art appreciation lessons here. Peter, you are SO wackily gifted!

    Dear Peter,

    I loved your poems. For me to understand your poems are like understanding abstract painting. I can feel and read with my point of weiv.

    Thank you Peter! You are so nice. Share ideas with you is honor for me, but I don’t think that I have enough English language ability. What ever! You always encourage me. Thanks.
