He painted with color harmonies
of sense and sound, to convert his feelings
into eloquence, pour out his heart, as bottles
are emptied, dripping with blue purple sorrow
life’s drama, traumatic wounds still bare
and last drops of happier yellow day’s cadence
brushed and scribbled, across the page
symbols contained in poetic chroma
sequence of form, pure intensity
of affective consciousness, reflective hues
behind and between the cause, coming into view.
