“In the Shape of a Painting”
Pulp Culture, Alex Brown

Color, bright’ning.
Forms, contrast to the shadows,
Tear through my canvas heart.
Oh, ev’ry stroke is hallowed;
Bleeding lines between
Moving lights,
I keep drawing out evocatively.
Senses keep me still
Drawn to the most graceful fading.
Take all of these needles;
Show me where the argument started.
It’s insipid, this
Protean infinite decline.
I create nothing
I can touch even though I am
I write
I’m right.
[SOLO 1]
[SOLO 2]


Coextending mirror symmetry,
Dual worlds,

Past recollects the present
Earth, may she come to falter.
There is no thought left to sacrifice;
Here your art shall be the altar.
In losing sight, I know.
In wanting what’s wasted,
We ever grow.
Doomed to forget, we’ll see.
If we ever meet again
You will agree.

Pyres of continual being have
Moved through the axis of this
That death is spectrums of life,
Visions of light,
Verses of songs plucked On strings with hyperverse plectrums.
In this space, reflected,
I face this manifold,
Bringing me back to
Displaced, Akashic inceptions
Compelled by nature to see
Aesthetic lies,
Beauty behind transient time,
I am just sculptures, decaying.

Make me a mayfly
To find why I paint
Eternal return.
