for Sarah & John Currin's 'The Pink Tree'
& Yr sister apposite the choral and
how can the artist describe Yr nude
Smile but those -- who's pink automatic
( You )
& spindly hand will reach &
prick this GALArific rainbow & precise arrangement
unclothed-coy, supporting her pivot
& historiographic radiance, shies
supplying future circles, licks of lights
the black sky rising, Yr comparative breasts
Washed with pale, easy brush strokes
adoration of the hands, possessive silken
& skimming -- four fingertips at Yr hip.
