The man walking across the path
looked like Jesus Christ: his dark skin,
a ten day beard, oily hair Picasso might
not want to sketch

some would assume his role might be
starring in a film where rivers look like streams,
mountains like mounds of flesh, and the moon
like that of a single, sad eye

he mouthed only “beautiful” and when he
disappeared from sight, you imagined
the sun was creeping up before its time

It stays with you, when you see a man
like that, maybe only once in a lifetime

(* from a quote by Pablo Picasso)

Ahoy, timmy!

Absolutely love this poem--so much so that I don't want to over-analyze or dissect it except to say I was especially struck by the ending and "the moon like that of a single, sad eye."

Hope all is well!
