1st Place

Bal du Personnalité Mondaine

Au revoir Renoir,

And the days of lacing shoes

to find the faces of friends

Paint their interests, blend

Their yellows and blues.


A collection of portraits

in one place. Identity

What’s around us.  Reality

Not in the worn slipper, but

A post of mud caked boot.


Like this for its value

On a phone, not the truth.

To a stranger it’s no less you

The painter begs you “don’t move”.


Impress with pictures, interests and lose

No more sole from wear. The wind blows

No strays from painted hair. There still

by the door, pristine as when

The world saw you, a dancer,

Subject to a photo-shoot ball.
