Galleria - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Galleria sober with magenta circles
Victor Hugo rings the strange bells
Guillotines of the repressive museum
Dialectic maidens voluptuous and serene
Straight line poets march in protest
Concepts as rigid as steep cathedrals
Definitions become inkwells of rules

Freedom paints with thick brush stokes
Fire shines from apples of her breasts
Her eyes pruned by a purple moon
Blue cisterns like sisters of a brothel
Cézanne wrestles with convention
Verlaine showers vermilion satin sheets
Poe an exorcist of the seriated feathers

Her pink toenails bold as the new jungle
Neruda gathers seashells of sensual nipples
We are the sparks of sapphire wine
She sings of Spanish thighs
Leave the smothered masks
Shine like Florence in moonlight
Canals of Venice lovers

Onward in forlorn Chanel no 5
Madonna silk wet in forest dew
Beds of the burning Ecole des Beaux
Ballerina kisses poignant as literate Chloe’s
Paint my darling with your navel topaz
Write like a lioness in golden fields
Let your wet eyes graze the stars

Proust shivers like a sea of jazz
Dali with tears of Einstein’s time
Burn these tunics of the albatross
7 wonders of the shy timid world
Streets drowsy with sleepy doorways
Emerge into the butterfly easel
Art in the Galleria dances like fire
