challenge in the blogosphere

find it here, courtesy of forgottenmachine.

i like a good challenge. here's my response, for posterity.

Archetypal every-woman,
Figure Enthroned circa now,
circa sepia tones, her knees
& the way she holds them,
parallel, a sphinx.

Still-Life: Supervillainess
with White Dog.
Featureless, characterless,
an ancient Kore resurfaced.

Movement is evident &
surrounds her limbs; her sphere
revolves. Light & shadow break away
& turn on each other. She's
the chiaroscuro in the nightmare,
shape of evening waiting
with the Dog-star.

this poem took 1 cigarette to write. that's what, 7 minutes?

Lovely poem. Charoscuro is a wonderful word too (I had to look it up, obviously). You must have an art history background to have known that one within 7 minutes.
