Light of Their Eyes

Light of Their Eyes

Regular price $300.00

14"x11" (15"x12" framed) acrylic, ink and pigment on canvas by Catherine Giglio

a painting with no background at all or
a minute’s rest then the star
comes down from the ceiling and covers her eye
a silver shutter replaces the other

he put his hand on her hand
sky         through the crack in the ceiling 
a glitter
              venetian blinds like the bar of a pretty cage

and in the street as the descended
the same words as ever
someone is leaving
             no time for goodbyes
in the dark there remained
the light of their eyes

(Anselm Hollo)
