Steven Riley: radiant child

Spring '14 TOC

Basquiat’s dead

Samo’s silent

great city walls

skeletal and blank


chalk lines

hoarded, gone

quiet roars

King and paint


alley doorways

naked, wanting

jazz, jazz, jazz


backstreets, open windows

electrical current

circuitry of the Muse

Ravel’s bolero pulsing

seducing another


write upon brick

draw upon wood

grab the bare wire

set free your radiant child


-Steven Riley
