Best Poem of Susan Lacovara

Artist Alone

It is not with the sadness,
Nor madness,
Of Van Gogh
That I exclude myself
On winter days, in February...
Neither is it with the passion
Of Mc Kuen' s loneliness
That prompts me to feed
The returning gray cat...
Surely it isn't the same
Broken hearted heaviness
That took Dali' s spirit
Makes me question why
I surrender
To the paleness
Of my room, unattached
To another's heart....
Tis merely my own poet's prison
That paints my starry starry night.

Read the full of Artist Alone

Nude

That your eyes see past the skin
That holds me within

That your hands reach not only for my body
But into the very breath of my soul

That your grin stems from seeing my smile
Knowing it was you who put it there

[Hata Bildir]
