On Boticelli's Venus and Mars
for File at http://pseudstuff.blogspot.com/
brad in tolouse
said venus was but a smile away
barred and needing company
came too close
in that special moment of angry weakness
and one onto another and
in the flood of celestial pleasure
drowning all the deathway to it's
and where they gave in
and where they drowned in her
flooded tapestry, and,
only the drying paint of memory remains....
or so brad boticelli would have had it....
had he been around
in tolouse that day....
I keep the painting to remind me anyway,
and use it for
