The self portrait “Reflection on a Dreamer” is a recent study in cool, neutral, and warm tones achieved primarily by observing my reflection in the studio mirror in the space of a few nights.

The portrait started out with eyes wide open but then gradually transformed into what it is now, although a few minor details should allow me to consider it completed, it is still in process. The poetry is once again based primarily on a recent nightly encounter.

Dreamer in Disguise

Faceless dreamer shroud

searching fruitless for reflection

long open white lab coat

fraud garment of perfection

arms supple in a circle

head invisible to my eyes

plasticity reigns this realm

soft mirror of disguise.

The dreamer cloaked as artist,

the dreamer as a fool

dreamer of distinction

dreamer molecule

dreamer fine magician

dreamer full of science

dreamer Nosferatu

dreamer pact in silence

dreamer as a hermit

dreamer with no clothes

dreamer close the circuit

dreamer chews and chose.
