I remember
Things about
You well
Your skin
Your face
When you

Your serious
About the dangers
& sorrows
Of life

Your aesthetic
Especially the
Ones you kept
For fear
Your art wouldn’t
Be appreciated

But I was there
& I saw what
You were
What you could paint
what you could make

& I believed you
That creating
Was an essential
Thing for you
For everyone

You edified me
With your ways

The art you hid
Always present
As the magic
In your eyes
