Odilia Rivera Santos

art requires me to stay with it
like a lover with a fever and hallucinations
i stay and hold its hand, firmly

the duration of suffering and that leap
out of depths back to health
are all a part - all play a part in creation and love
and the love of creation

silent-film suffering doesn't concern me
rhyme neither
sway of a voice
the Baptist Church soloist hand wave
a party with important people
full of character
