Breaking an Archetype

November 7, 2012

A casual side glance.
Some ordinary woman bathed in light from the window
As memory is flooded with the archetypal:

  • Eve
  • Venus
  • Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2

I am suddenly captivated by an object.
No surprise that this should be the material of poets and painters
The wonder of scientists.
The way that the flesh wraps around the warm tissue
The movement of contours through space.
You lack the same grace, at least in movement.
It’s why you awaken.
Her bodies are beautiful but get lost in each other;
You disrupt the flow
With careless defiance.
