Life's Work

P1010298

The great Artist is at work.
Around his house, his children move
in whispers, while his wife
lays down a dinner tray,
tells that it’s there
with two soft raps – no more – tapped on his study door.

The great Artist begs his work
to yield to him, to offer up
its answers; while outside,
his children move away
(as children always will, towards play)
and food that took an hour to cook, or more
turns cold there on the floor.
