nude in the sunlight

somewhere in some museum

pierre-auguste renoir has a painting



i’ve seen it in a book



somewhere inside of me

i can see you as the model with

the barret drawn from your hair

and your shoulders flushed with color



what is not inside of me is the thought

that i am the impetus for the color or

the artist with broad and gentle brush strokes



and while you will say that is my problem



i can say

that you will never understand

the pleasure that picture has for me

In thirty years of reading poetry, this is one of the finest love poems I have ever read, online or off.
