#130--Vintage Story

Nadja

blue glove
and bronze glove

innocence and weight

one like a vase
the other like an angel

a light breeze
connects them

a current flows
between them

the bronze glove
topples over

the blue glove
lifts like a balloon

the battery broken,
all Paris
grows dark

Coffee and Tea 鴛鴦偶寄
by Holly Lee


(A gift from Big head Tommy. Painting by Tomio Nitto)

Big head Tommy

Big head Tommy
have your way
sketch our city
any fine day
talk to a captain
sail on his ship
swim with dolphin
touch a fish

Big head Tommy
enjoys cooking
from his sun room
he enjoys looking
stories in his head
appear on canvas
a year after they're born
painted over with new ones

Big head Tommy
born in war years
village life fell hard
yet never felt tears
trees had flowers
streams had shrimps
youngest and bravest
a carefree vagabond

Big head Tommy
wandered like clouds
landed Canadian weather
he threw his plough
the soil is fetching
the air can sing
seasons distinctive
Winter Autumn Summer Spring

Big head Tommy
do you miss home?
away from siblings all alone
wings on your back
you said you've met
Libertas in her phrygian cap
and Beaver the Sharp Teeth
in his High Park home

Big head Tommy
walks all day
no pedometer no whatsapp
he's alert to world news
he knows what's on
see old friends discover new place
joining football fans in retro Revue
watching FIFA eating pop corn

Tabletop Studio
by Gary Michael Dault

No. 191. Colin and Clifford Discuss His Work.
He seldom welcomed visitors to his studio, but he always made an exception for the the rare appearance there of two old mendicant, rudely philosophical cronies named Colin and Clifford. He'd met them in art school--so many decades ago!-- and saw them maybe once every five years. The funny thing about them (he actually found it endearing) was that, after he'd made them comfortable and got them coffee, they'd settle down, not to chat with him, but to look at his new work--and talk about it as if he weren't there.
"There's a lot of yearning here," said Colin.
"Searchlights and hot air balloons," noted Clifford.
"Upwardness."
"Yes," said Clifford.
"You don't think our boy is waxing transcendental in his dotage, do you?" smiled Colin.
"It wouldn't be like him," said Clifford.
"Still, there's all this striving..."
"And buoyancy" added Clifford.
"Light-headedness," said Colin, with a smirk.
"It's untethered," Clifford decided.
"It is that," agreed Colin.
"Would you two like more coffee?" he asked them.
"We'll get it," grinned Clifford. "Don't get up."
