Signs of an Artist

Some can take the thing that’s loved and every atom gives an image to the tips of the fingers from the paint and the brush

from the out stretched energy of the outer shells

to the inner capacitance of power

right by love

like a lily on the pond

straight to Sirius and back home

in a kitchen with the semell of garlic and ginger and pepers and onions and salmon or chicken

or coffee brewing

Some people can take the image into the inner chambers of their heart and

right while the blood is pumping and the drum is rolling,

they give you a sign of their love.
