big old clock,

bore the brunt of time

sat with pendulum sway

in studio corner,

once walnut

chipped, paint fleck, sheen

sometimes linseed rag thrown

at it in temper,

in sight the artist aware

more so now,

stagnation passed,

creations shadow appeared

she was new

very awkward,

found her on the street

in a heap,

short skirt needle holes

behind knees,

worn t-shirt and drunk,

but her face held him

unconventional yet striking,

willing appeared at studio,

clothed or naked

they shared,

she embraced the chill

screens and props,

he absorbed her body,

character, soul, shape and form,

stood still load the palette,

canvas warmed under her gaze

her scent of alcohol diminished

drinking less talking more,

her heart was full

and he unloaded it,

stripping away with a wash of color

her pain and all that she once wanted

forgotten,

skimmed over he saw her now

not as one fallen far

but as a muse,

a rare beauty,

whose looks and words

made realization

that this was not the end

as he fell in love
