Partners In Canvas


They need each other

Partners in canvas


The artist and the model


Lives commingle

Into one

For thirty minutes

One at the easel

The other unclothed


Soft in pose

Just the sound

Of charcoal touching paper

As the curvature of the spine

And the bending lower torso

Grips the moment

With eyes closed

A skeleton in motion

Sitting, standing

And reclining

As if transported

By white horses

By the Greek gods

And the brush of Michelangelo

Painting the ceiling above.
