She Is But Truth To Me

Mercedes Dawson Stand: 626

Acrylic, inks, metals and iridescent inks on 20x16inch canvas


This artwork is based on the following piece:


To reach out and almost touch

sense-memory that works in overdrive

vibrant in my dreams

real in my waking state.


Clear and palpable,

I rub my fingertips together

-         feel her still


press them to my lips,

flicker a tongue

-         taste her still.


And like wisps of sweet perfume

the moment has gone.
