Ode To A Master

Poem By Jan Houston

a fine hot wire
connects a future
to this throbbing heart
I dare not speak
of unrequited dreams
fearing connection's spark
would wrench me
from my body

yet you
you touch me
from my future
with your timeless art
and stir these
cloistered phantoms
to the light
sobbing
at your perfect beauty


~ to Shakespeare ~
