Finding A New Mistress


A found poem from the New York Times article:
The Man Who Saw America by Nicholas Davidoff
About Robert Frank ~ the photographer (July 5, 2015)


A Young Artist


One too many mornings of stubble
his melancholy eyes
collect the world.

He could have been anybody
in a casino, restroom, elevator
in a second-hand Ford.

In search of some moment
unable to explain.
A young artist.

In love. Alone.
Upriver into the heart of ambivalence
lost in a piece of the middle.

You have doubts.
You wear humanity differently.
The ache of a narrow bed.

The business of catching things
grasping at prayer
time to look for a new mistress.
