COLOUR ON CURT CORNERS, PART 6; CAUGHT ON CANVAS

 

Connie
was caught
by colour in the corner
of the castle where curtains
collected carnations,
Connie
was captured
courting curious
on the canvas of a castle
in a kingdom condemned,
Connie
was caught
by the kiss of a courter
in the courtyard where calla lilies
were cut,
Connie
missed the caution
in the cut of the calla
while her courter crept away
with her coin,
Connie’s
forever captive
on that canvas in colour
in that corner too curt
with the kiss of that courter
now a cancer
on her complexion
that no carnation covered
curtain could ever conceal.

    Poor Connie–though she doesn’t look unhappy. I think she looks kind of mysterious, but though she’s inviting the viewer to come join her. Who need that courtier? 🙂

      I think Connie has had time to get used to hanging around. She lingers in a slightly forgotten side annex of the musée Bourdelle and so doesn’t get many viewers so she likes to try for a little attention whenever the door squeaks
