the healing muse

Volume 8, 2008


Joan Cofrancesco

The painter of
blank eyes
drained dry by tears,
of bulging bellies, teeth
and thick furs
starving prey
wolves tearing each other

Object to Be Destroyed

Man Ray attached
Lee Miller’s eye
to a metronome
as the eye ticked away
he picked up a
hammer and smashed
it to pieces.
I never understood
avant-garde art
until you came into my life.
