mona lisa xanadu

from where you stand
look me in the eye
watch my smile
twitch and lift
your heart out of your head
you saw it, didn’t you?
you should know me
there’s nothing up my sleeve
you’re inventing the magic
the mistress
the pregnant virgin
the ill maiden
the apprentice lover
the artist
just believe
whatever you say
i am
as i’ve always been
in your mind
for you

  1. This is so true. I have never been an artist or anything. But I have made some startling drawings and sculptures. And the fact is they had to exist inside me first. It's just like getting a fossil out of the stone without breaking it. That's making art.

Say something!
