Aristotle with a Bust of Homer
The Rembrandt on my Greek textbook
Reminds me why I learn the case.
Anachronistic image of
The Aristotle must be me.
A shadow of obscurity
Enveloped shoulders of him here.
It has laid him upon burden
Which he bears with the pride and airs.
The light falls on the point of touch
Between his hand and Homer's bust.
The gestur's patronising, but
A section of light on his skull.
The points of light, they tied in each.
In gold of Modern Time, he's forced
Above. The gesture is an act.
His hand is solemn forgery.
The gaze is filled with meekness and
Compassion. I feel like Burne-Jones:
Abandoned in prim and decent.
