One Poem by Kate Young

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Brothers in Art

Conjoined, separate
they leg-toddle on
across Klee’s canvas
bathed in gold,

a pair of eyes
in lineal logic,
a glareframe-staring

a strange geo-monster
wrapped in ‘isms’,
Cubism, Futurism,
Miro-like Surrealism

releasing the key
to peel back the lid
from a rusted tin,
rolling, unfolding

a pulsating heart
shared by pairing
Picasso and Braque,
the brothers in Art,

walking in step
to a balanced beat
of metronome
on constant repeat,

shapes and shades
in light and space,
harmonious lines
of Cubist grace,

bodies blended
minds fragmented
soulmates, rivals,
Cubist survival,

Klee the optimist
soothing palette,
texture round
with static passage.
