TEXTURES IN MOTION (THE POEM)

(Inspired by artist Zohra Opoku's portrait series TEXTURES that features me. It describes an identity of an artist, by subverting the wardrobe of the subject: https://vimeo.com/125732879)

Performance unlimited-
Stray ghosts
Blow life into shield
Mimic my story
In the denseness of garments
Their movements
Around the stillness
Depicts the style of sculpture
Dancing to music of air
Gyrating to flair of art

Textures draped
With symbols sacred
Soaked from home
Culture in a calm setting 
Of incomplete construction
Aligning motion of philosophy
As the artist in all intrinsic expression
In communion with environs
Draws passion into bowel
And delivers
In the silence of a howl

    In the silence of a howl - Such a fine poem and reminds everyone that screams need to be heard.
