 Dividing Lines

The shapes and colours

are cut out

in symmetrical perfection 

to lie close,

seemingly random but close.


but divided by the black lines, 

drawing boundaries between them.

Only some shapes can be joined


That’s how it is.

Matisse torn them all up

joined the pieces


made something of them.

But that was in his art,

in life they’re still distanced,

more Mondrian than Matisse.

Art and life,

make what you can of it.
