Best Poem of John Farrell

Abstract Art

Drawing on the eyelids of a vulpine beauty
Wailing inward at abstract art

Flickering images/ ghost-like
Fading in and out of mid-west focus

Leaving titanium white brush strokes
On the canvas of habitual sleep

Embracing her in your arms
Kissing her hand in the slaughter-house

Smeared memories of quietus passion
The vulpine beauty hanging on the meat hook

Blood dripping/ abstract art on the floor
