PAINTING WITH CONTROL

Paint by numbers and hold onto

the verve with which

you try and gain control

of brush-head and canvas

 

 

scanty with the pen which

slips off the page

without so much as a whimper

ready to disparage pages that

have gone before

 

 

crazy with the whip

hold onto the quiet times

and get ready for the cracking of

chain-armoured leather

and shortage of foods

for war is never far away
