the truth about masterpieces

drifting beyond the lightest cloud
(pastel clowns in post mortem rain parade)
cascading in the cold moon dust
to shed this latest mascarade

wounded memories hang from the mind
(autumn berries quivering three quarters past prime)
when did "mediocre" pock the virgin tree,
when devils told us," painting by numbers
was just mindless barb and babble"
not a feathered masterpiece?

your very first epiphany,
an evening frost pon tender leaf
even that...nothing really unique...
they should have stated the slate cold truth
as soon as we could breathe.

    I think that my firt epiphany was that my imagination could conquer the world Anthony - your depth of metaphysics, and the originality of metaphor are masterful my friend - I'm very impressed with the hierophant quality and I'll be reading more of your work - hiding truth is a very bizzarre virtue - J.A.B. %
