Artistic Reexamination

Standing there

midst old friends...

fabric chums who've long been...

time ticking on his brain...

a mind as dusty as these...

who have not seen day...

the sun not diminishing the color...

such color as would show the world a reason why...

with such reason he would be vindicated...

given his place amongst his peers...

often wondering if it is with them he wishes to be...

or if the solitude of being apart..

gives his work integrity...

noble virtues are surely worth a moment or two of silence...

yet in this moment he has care to recant...

seeing his loved ones...

images who have not been loved by any save he...

In love he starts to remove the sands of time...

examining which should be shared first...

then checking his emotional response...

makes a list...

taking snapshots of this crew...

then leaving the door shut where it stood...

tomorrow maybe after this list had been considered...

he never did go back...

his loved ones shocked at the find...

this poem as a note affixed to one...

before you now the sands of time.
