Description

The warm glow of the sunsetting sky
Fades from midnight blue
To a charcoal black reflecting
The city lights in an opaque mirror
Of empty cold.

The citizens recede into a warmer place,
A jolly drink and silence-shattering laughter
Fill the tavern with roaring energy,
Echoing into the night.

The lonely man sits outside,
Dressed in bulky layers,
Staring at passers by with blank sincerity
And in his hopeless container are bits of metal
Scarcely scattered along the bottom.
He holds on without attachment as the warmth
of his blanket cradles his hollow heart.

The exhausted working man
Walks home with a hoppy gait.
The thoughts of supper twirl in his mind,
As he allows the pull of the warm image
To lead him home through the night.

Behind the curtain,
The actors are fidgeting around,
Preparing for the first act.
An unexpecting draft moves the curtain,
Allowing a sliver of light to shine out
Into the black seating area of patient guests.
The silent flash screams with potentiality
As the onlookers await the next light.

So mysterious, so evasive,
This flash of potential.
We wait in vain,
For it is already alight.

Appearance of Being No.2 is laminated from four pieces of Peruvian Walnut. It is finished with a beeswax/mineral oil mixture. The dark tone and curling form suggests an outward blossoming of vast emptiness — a dichotomy of pushing out and pulling in.
