Should I let things stay unspoken
and in silence turn away?
As you say.
As you wish.
Clasp cold fingers
across my lips
and dare me not to speak.

But I invoke your name,
pray to you
in troubled times.
I kneel before your altar
and read your tattered works.
I do as you would do,
but not as you have done.

You would have me
bury your memory,
and scour your footprints clean.
But instead I trace the etchings,
take my knife
and carve them deep.

Oh mad genius,
you are legend.

En memoria de VAM, falleció 4 marzo 2014.

Is that like taking pictures of zen sand paintings?

@Alice: Only in the sense that all our lives are sand paintings and can't be held long in memory before they blow away.

Some would have you forget their painting ever existed, even if you thought it beautiful, because it didn't meet their own standards of perfection.

The existence of a standard of perfection strikes me as filled with maya.
