On a Painting

On a  Painting

Hey, what are you up to?
here is a sliver of earth
between two gravid rivers  ?

Swelling  with milk
they quelled  dyslexic lands 
that dried and cried in nobody’s tongue.
they too had a fateful beat.  
only it was random or circardian. 

Obscurity is clarity, here and now,
of  mitochondrial stuff.
methodical  minimalisation
inside  a faceless river of black milk.
languorous flow to  wet  phenomenal  banks.

Who  would not notice
the hyperlinks  dripping nectar?
like  running nose, perhaps,
in a manner of speaking.
they flow into a fulfillment,
Or into wind-swept  islets!

Inspiration: The Frida Kahlo Painting “ My nurse and I”
