#129--Days After Tomorrow

Ars Artistica

There’s nothing nourishing
in the paint
no thinking in the ink
any lithograph is a sidewalk
with a pigeon’s punctuations

The city slides on
the subways whine and grumble
people speak into their palms
walk right into each other
startled
by the momentary
memorial touch of body
only to be
scanned away
back to the stuffy peace
brimming in their devices

Please don’t step on my toes
these are only sneakers
if you get them dirty
a black taxi will pick me up
and take me to
that part of the city
where they keep
people with dirty shoes

Tabletop Studio
by Gary Michael Dault

No. 190. The Empty Easel. Something was wrong. The easel seemed three times as large as it usually did. Sitting before it, he felt as small as his cat. He was teeming with ideas, but utterly lacked the fortitude--or the physical stamina--to act upon them. Was he ill? Old? Victorian poet Robert Browning had insisted that "a man's reach should exceed his grasp" but lately he had no grasp whatsoever. Maybe a few weeks away would help. But where ought he to go?
