The Artist at Her Work


The Artist at Her Work

An iron chain fastened one end

to post

the other

to capuchin monkey

who

simulates her descendant

Gertrude Stein and acts

as though there is no use

for a center

who

becomes more

than laboratory subject

becomes more than

207 consecutive

problems with stick and banana

when

ignoring the stick

she makes a canvas of the

laboratory floor

and

hovers out geometric shapes

achieving

the effect of

roughly

Mondrian.

—Tess Galati

Previously published in the book, Holy Trinity: Maiden, Mother, Crone by Tess Galati.
