Ode to Rene Margritte

Attempting the Impossible

La Magie Noire

I forgave my bitterness but returned your course

I couldn’t follow you into your abyss

The last goodbye to you but with a kiss

To remind me it started with many places

Ended with unreadable traces

I felt you painted me with oil

Threw water on and watched me recoil

Your face became a muddled cover

And I couldn’t see, that you were my lover

The deed had done itself under

Replaced my beating heart with thunder

The heavens lapped their clouds around my breast

As the earth slowly took over the rest

We dangled on the edge of obsolete

Because our affection had never been complete

All this in me you could portray

When I fell in love with you, Rene

Gelconde
