    Very nice words with a story and kept short, as I do with mine as I feel that the longer the poem is can sometimes detact the reader and make some poem repetitive! !

Best Poem of Francis Tikava

A Canvas In Retrospect

Away from me now!
I cannot feed you, clothe you or care for you,
Your stolid nature and frail frame depress me.
A painting, you claim, a work of art,
But there is no art in aching and crawling,
Only pain.
You laud what is true,
No matter the nature in rotting trees,
Each brush stroke is like a dart,
My heart, the bull’s eye, is shrinking.
And soon I will not gape at your self-righteous face.
You have no home here, I forget your embrace.
