In 1953, father paid 20 dollars
to a young Japanese artist

so he could paint mother in oil
from a black & white photo
father kept in his wallet

For hours, father pointed
to red blush and egg white
and indigo blue, air breathing
a reasonable happiness

helping the young artist
to conceptualize his love
three thousand miles away

And how the world has since
changed; its breath verses
through dead lips, sweet
heart to sweetheart, lost
to one another going on
now these last twelve years
