Artist Notes
© 2011 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved __________________________________________________________________________________ Unconditional Conditions __________________________________________________________________________________ Gazing steadfast into your green eyes as deep and quiet as a woodland pool, I'm so afraid! The new-healed cuts, scrapes, and feral depredations from my last encounter with that wild beast Love still adorn me, sticking-inward spines that pierce the inner being. __________________________________________________________________________________ You ask me to expose this flesh again, to turn it out into your hungry hands; to lay it, naked, 'neath your hopeful heart. __________________________________________________________________________________ And if I do, will you be true not just in tongue but also in the soul? Or will you like a vandal false roughplunder all my lace, ripping it ruthlessly from whence it lies – limplucent – on my life? __________________________________________________________________________________ I ask you for the sun, I ask you for the moon; and bring with them the Pleiades, Orion's jewelled belt, Cassiopeia's silver crown. __________________________________________________________________________________ I ask you for the truth – not to be said but to be lived – not for a fierce hot tropic season, but forever and a day. ~ © 2011 RC deWinter
