Jonathan Beale ~ Where the Harlequins Dance

after Jean Miro

Here in this side shot: this geometric view
What a vision from every perspective in one.
This firework psychology: the sky is dreamt
And it is superficial magical and organic.

The inevitability of moon is the sun –
Paris’ judgement is ultimately judged by the masses
No one is not included –
“look, look, see how they dance”

Music blends among the bodies: they of the
Passionate reds and mandarin blues
Space for both, the starfish lovers waiting,
Just waiting to find each other.

The stone of the foundations upon which they dance
In this freest of state’s – breaking: breaking.
The ladder, Jacob’s perhaps.
Each point hovers along: or up-or-down.

Spinning, they cannot fail – laughter’s spindle
Touches all …
Music – see how the chords & sharps:-
Lick each and every ear drums charm.

The nights eternity, drinks us all in.
They cannot tire – they cannot forget
The harlequins carnival breathe
Life into all who come.

They spare their joy – the lost rules
Forgotten – they dance … on and on.
The side shot: this geometric biological
Vision from every perspective.
