the resolution of Dorian Gray

the resolution of Dorian Gray


a portrait, with its scars, sins, and cavernous despairs
is created for a token, given endless youth
then hidden
a reflection in a mirror

grand history stretching rainbow
make-up written on the face
and in the cellular structure of all beings
is more than false, more than paste, the true jewel

bending with the flow of change
a willow on a flooding river
a blade of grass underfoot
the rise and fall of bodys' breath

this year's new vow, a resolution of flexibility
to see through and attend like the knife 
that pierced and freed poor Youth's heart; releasing 
its' crisp and sweet, from the craquelure of varnish
