Darren C. Demaree… Nude Male With #201 & #200

 
 

NUDE MALE WITH ECHO #201

Without immensity, with
the size of a forenoon day
I can be the white edges,
 
but then I can only grow
to interfere with the scene
of art. I want to be the art.
 
That’s why I’ve covered
my body with pictures,
because before all of those
 
little, driving ink pens found
me supple enough to be
taken, nobody looked at me.
 
 

NUDE MALE WITH ECHO #200

I want to lake
the tree, swim
the trunk
 
after suspending
myself briefly
above the foliage.
 
I want to be taken
in. I want the sun
to nourish me.
