Comments about Allesandra Patti
Leonardo Davinci (Acrostic)
Leonardo deified the Medici of Florence;
Ever the optimist, he defied them constantly,
Overwhelming them with his consummate art.
Naturally, they repaid him with disdain;
Adoration notwithstanding they often withheld
Rewardinghis colossal achievements.
Dedication to his art inspired his
Oath to immortalize Mona Lisa using sfumato,
Daring in its execution of style, perspective
And grace. His explorations in science are
Victorious monuments to our present age and his
Inventions stand today in testimony to his genius.
Nevertheless he is best known for ...
The days in Border Town shimmer
with dust that hangs in the air palpable as pudding.
The nights lonesome as a coyote's cry,
and black as death, except for the bright lights
from El Paso, flickering like fireflies.
'You're wasting your time, Johnny, ' Sally says,
pouring thick black coffee into his tin cup.
'Them mines are dry as coyote bones
now that the rush is over and everybody's long gone.'
