Oil on Water – A Poem

 

Oil on Water

Oil on water or on
canvas
and I am now and always was
and never have been.

Oil
on water or on canvas
and I am forgotten or remembered.
A shoreline.
Tides roll.

Oil on
water
or on canvas
and green blue morning yellow at sunset.
Wake by four, walk by five.

Oil on water or on
canvas
and when and how
but not this.
Not yet.
Grey stone gateway a marker.
A path bearing right
disintegrates.

Oil on water
or
on canvas
and naked mouths shout riddles.
Closed meaning justification.
Orange tree
daydream a straight bridge home.
