chagall backdrop

an opus deserves
a thorough read
not some topical
nod

on the surface
it appears
a no-thing
you’ll comprehend

perhaps it’s really
beyond you
in a manner you’ll decide
is beneath you

ignore it
feel free even
to revile

like sonar
sweeps your landscape
peruse the depths
of your charge

walk the waterfront
of your longing
till you fail
to tell

the difference
between the things you need
and the storm about

to dash
your head

adrift

you are
awash

are you
awake?
