Art Exhibit - Poem by Gary Witt

Her gown has come undone;
A rebellious string-of-a-strap
Incited insurrection
Beside the chocolate fountain,
And in her eyes I see
Panic, theater, and mischief
As she fumblingly holds things together
In a way that provides me
A playful peek here,
Her wide-eyed gasp there,
And a conspiring reluctance
To leave quickly with my jacket
Thrown over the shoulders of her
Critically acclaimed,
Performance art version of
Botticelli’s Venus.
