Painting on a Wall

He comes close in




Steps back

glances at me as he leaves

I want to shout at him

‘Don’t look at me, be with me

And you will see.’

He’s back

A relaxed look in his eyes

Begins to move as if dancing

Is dancing

Blows me a kiss as he leaves

I blush

He’s seen me

And I’ve seen him.

(Derek Jarman Exhibition John Hansard Gallery Southampton Feb 2022.)
