Good-bye Matisse your papier codes
are OK it's your occupation
art's such a nice place to bring up
your heroes wearing say
pushed up at the elbows a dark
blue sweatshirt in the wide chalky
world of exemplars where nothing happens its
watermark of a fool's cap and bells
in the grain and red harbour board
pilot cutters ply there lining up again the ACT IV
to port that I look upon cacoethes
scribendi a maze of figures tracking upon
their own plane the air
craft's here it's the rest of your life.
