Juli Jana: What’s Hidden & What Slips

With Math?

*****

CONSTRUCT

I had always wondered
about the angles of magicians
what’s hidden & what slips
between lip & lip
a breath half uttered
the rouge on flesh
the ears of a rabbit

it could be that the painter predicts
what the conjurer performs
turning wheat fields to turmeric
spring to shimmering saffron-green
orange blaring as marigold
colour cut to shapes

quincunx in black
set against a red triangle shifting
changing surface to depth to perspective
the canvas cloth its warp and woof
to the random construct of the imagination
