Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.”

“The face is the portrait of the mind; the eyes, its informers.”
– Latin

Portrait in 4D

After his wife of over fifty years died,
He began using crystal pendulums
To contact her, announced he had
The healing touch, though no one felt
A thing, tried to read books on time
And consciousness, his glass of whisky
Refilled always, no matter doctor’s orders,
And sometime after lunch would settle
For diversions on TV, the mechanisms
Of DVDs and Cable far beyond him,
His vision winding down, winding down.

Earl Livings
