Still life

Still life

What moves
           matter ?
Matter of fact
           a body of work
flesh and blood
           a Turner sunset
sets in the sunset
           the colour of light
the colour of love
           she who emerges
from her shell
           of beauty
who hangs
           in the night sky

love is a matter

           of fact
the haunting look
           on her face
a voice courting
           a troubled voice
betrayal
           in the genes
