Best Poem of Clifton Redmond

When I Paint My Masterpiece

There it is right in front of me
the perfect poem
a masterpiece
like a silk thread tapestry
woven by the hands of a master.

My eyes are in disbelief
at how it meanders on the page
glowing as I bask in its structure
the sheer clarity
as I discover the workings of his mind.

Actually inspired
as I stutter
wading through his old verse
this mad scientist of the past
cutting words and dicing them.

Pulling them apart
and making them dance like a puppeteer
with stanzas hanging from a string
the simple intrusion of the great crowd ...
