A Book of Hours

Honour is as fierce a Future
To bring into focus of Grass eaters
From the space in its last couple of years
Where the alpha and omega gaze. 
To a painter "exciting" is the hope word
Not as strong as the black and whites
Which may or may not be true taking shapes
Themselves flowing and passing away from. 
Power is still without a quiver:
There is only the mirror before us
As the largest canvas on a pack of tarot,
Touching its hand to your shoulder. 
And then, near the end into solid light
The yearning for revolution's perfect change
Is, that point, your hands to be read, birds come
In terms of those thin first gropes in fight.

"Geographer" by Johannes Vermeer
