Portrait of the missing friend

Head to toe, paved

with a fearless

tongue that can speak

of this sculpture,

this scripture.

photographs of

you and the memory

the trust of fingertips

of painted nails

figure of power

eyes deep blue

that chisel at the

sky of summer time.

smile, that deep

wandering smile

searches through a

field of mismatched

wild flowers

finds a four leaf clover

in mud.

bright coloured strength

calms the storm.
