Affair of the heart


The Eel, Henri Matisse 1920 Columbus Museum of Art

How much slips away

entangled love -fluid

engulf these tears

dissolve my fears

voices rattle the dark.

You left too soon

-to quiet this blue.

(This Matisse uses muted colors comparatively to his other paintings. How does this set the mood?)
