Pincelada Flotante y Habitad (Inhabited and Floating Paint Stroke)

Here's a little something that was inspired by a painting in the Blanton Museum, which is definitely a place you should all visit to see some excellent exhibits and some of Boho Coco's own poets!

abandoned footprints
so carefully placed
side by side like lovers--
erased by watery tongues
and recovered downriver under
the sooty depressions of child-feet,
estuaries salt rocky outcroppings
covered in fungus and chinese lanterns
and miniature whirlpools of salt
trapped between bare ankles
until the stones become smooth like skin

a different smoothness,
the icy sheen of steel that stifles
velvet worm-tunnels and severs
muddy streams like capillaries;
it demolishes
upward, outward

America, when was your Dream burnished metal
and Twenty-Story Hotels with walls
covered in frame-trapped pictures?

How can art be contained? mounted?

defiantly, enamel drips free
down the faux wood panelling
settling through pores in decrepit linoleum
until it melds with the sediment pulse of the earth

all civilization decays with the moss of time

Wow, it's great to see some more work for you. I love the stanza that starts with America; also, great visuals throughout. I always enjoy the interplay between exposition and description. Nice work. Also, the poems hung on the walls at the Blanton are not of the Boho Coco, but find me wandering the halls, and I'll gladly lay some on you.
