reminded of you

what if
everyone
i ever fell in love
with
what if
every
crush
every obsession
every
unexplainable
attraction
was my seeing
you
in them?
what if
all these years now
i have been
falling in love
with the parts of
them
that remind me of
you?
that is
if someone can be
reminded
of someone
they’ve never
met
not in this life
anyway…
but someone
i can feel
in
my
heart
nevertheless.

my version of gustav klimt’s judith I.
i used bamboo pen & ink brush. i really really like the way it turned out.
i did not see the head in her hand until i was at that part of the painting. i turned it into the head of the “you” in my poem. now i realize it is intended to be the decapitated head of the man judith seduced to save her village.
tomato–tomahto.

ps. there is only one page left in my current art journal. endings & beginnings.
