Lament of Letting Go of My Art

I’ve stepped away
out of reach, of
art breathing life
love into my soul
I’ve to eat, seek
bodily sustenance, roof
over my wretched head

withers, my vigor,
belly fire for
imagery, libretto, sentiment
to forge stage, cinema

out of reach, now
lies my pen, oxidizing
a choice, indeed choice
to live, bisected artist-worker bee

weeping, grieving times
where comrades in arms, take
stage and screen both
