Tonight's Poet Corner: The Concept

The Concept
by Belinda Roddie

Let the visual
weave its fingers
together with the
verbal, who sings
praises for the visual,
while the visual blushes
and smiles and gives
a little wave to its audience.

Once they're holding hands,
they will present the theme
perfectly - all lines
intersecting, all shapes
bearing heavy angles, all
colors decorating the mosaic
flattened onto a piece
of weathered paper.

Motifs need their winged
messengers. Morals
have subtle wives. Let
the visual embrace
the verbal, and then
you've built a body
that remains bold.
