Portraiture

sound iconHear the poem

Something in a hospital
So concentrates a face

Not pain or worry or relief
Alone

But gravity of ripeness:

The touches of a word or hand
Assume their birthright buoyancy
In knowledge of the ends of breath
And seasoned kindness
Draws from our visages their history

With every brushstroke we betray ourselves:

What features strange, resourceful and unscaled
Emerge as tutors to the unshuttered eye
Along the stations of its ministry

And how the cloaked and hooded soul is bared

Anew!

- Emanuel E. Garcia
