Fantastic Realism

Kieran drew out my prompt at Worcester Writers’ Circle and has written this splendid poem about the de Barros image.

Baldypoems

Picture by Andre Martin de Barros

Andre Martin de Barros

Fantastic Realism

The glance of the lance,

drawing the eye to the lie

as it draws blood

by chance, a flood of art,

infested by those contested,

yet able

to play

at my empty table.

Unstable, the knight errant,

A deterrent

for would be kings,

mere inklings,

sheer inklings,

dear inklings.
