To My Sinister Brain

My dear sinister brain,

Please do not fret.

Cooperate and let

Ideas that seem

Concrete and lean

Undo your power supreme.

Put aside your fears,

Formulas, logic, and ideas.

Rest, while I image the best

of spacial relationships

to timeless metaphor.

Believe me. Better that

Durer, Matisse, Bavetta

Know what they see willing

Adroit, gauche harmony.
