the vermillion past by Teri H Hoover
They vibrate in the corner
in the upstairs studio.
Three boxes of magazine images,
pruned from the pages of print,
Drawing in the artist,
a well baited hook.
Emerging by chance or design
from the grind of fluttering pages,
the vibrant, cobalt dot
set out to align itself with
the faded vermillion square.
Nimbly, the obliging fingers
ignored the off beat contrast,
setting them together with a dab of glue.
A collage of comfort, upon the page.
Blue dot, embraces square gently,
and gives a subtle wink, in the direction of the artist.
Faded vermilion square remembers, a clear, bright past.
