He started with delicate brushstrokes painted on a golden screen
Depicting a mystical journey through a whimsical dream.
But it was the realism of reality that then directed his wrist
To a black out his canvas leaving only an angry secreting cyst.
He started again with a fresh palette and brush.
He changed the composition using heavy paints, both rich and lush.
But again the metaphysical view escaped from his dream.
He left his canvas to be swallowed by the pragmatist’s scream!
