'The Painting' by Daniel Brown

Paint on breasts, thighs,

face and head,

warm hidden places,

creates yellow, red, blue, green, orange

passionate textures on the canvas--

entwined bodies undulating

two body pallette

two body brush.

The finished painting

is observed in a gallery

casually by those strolling by

one after one

in suits and dresses,

whispering approval

longing for later

holding wine,

with no clue of

the method used

or the shower: paint trickling

down the drain, or their bed

a perfect coupling of Pollack and O'Keefe.
