I Dreamed of a Modern Art Show
Recurrent dream, 1983/6/28 and 9/18 by Chris Wayan
Square eye-cages on the walls.|
Lots of lines and sticks. Few balls.
Planes, panes, stresses and strains!
Look, a lone bold oval!
While the forms I live,
As if Etosha Pan's sere line
Their Pan pipes "clean" and "bold" and "mind"

Banquish: from "The Witch Family" by Eleanor Estes. Banish plus vanquish.
Bone: O'Keeffe's bone paintings. Golly, an actual SHAPE. She just won't obey the boys who say squares, squares, squares are the thing.
Stopless: from Emily Dickinson. Both "ceaseless" and "an open note" like a blown unfingered flute.
