Studio Visit HG
HG 2002

Her pre-war Hackney
industrial era studio share

the size of a tennis court
in the grimy Albion complex

had a row of fram windows
tall with a low-walled view

above an array of skips
of a distant Canary Wharf

or rather the top half
looming in sultry cloud.

                    *

I demanded she cut an acrylic
painting on the floor in half, never
to be forgiven but it hangs now
over the head of my bed
with monsters caged to red
by a liminal doorway in blue.

Was she Helen of Troy? or a Druid
Priestess? being from time to time
of an incredible beauty yet able to age
in an instant to the shamanic ancient
and I was inwardly terrified and told
sex could not get in the way of things
as I began eyeing her scruffy sofa...

my parting kiss on her starchy cheek
was not very well received, if at all.
Thus began an Arthurian Quest or
a mission to rescue Helen of Troy...
or, one day, who would rescue who?

=========================
April 2016. First published by and
written for www.sundialzen.com

Final 12 impromptu lines written
online on a hot July 4th in 2019.
Helen was about her total purity...
