The Artist like a Gleam

For Cy Twombly

      It’s the
Atrocity of

Finding out
      It’s these

Notions of
Other versions

         These
Necessary

Lines in &
Of pictorial

Diminutions
Greeting us

Fending us off
This glass

Standing for
Glass only

      It’s this
Moment

Notched into
The edged

Muscle of
The artist

Like a gleam
This fat paint

This big rain—
Just fields

Of scrape
& empty

      & the eye—
Reversing

Expectations
Of wildly

Subversive
Pupils—is

Plastered to
The surface—

The angst
& vroom—

The ______
Of Cy

Twombly’s
Tiznit
