The Art of An Affair

It could be the Tate, the Frick,

the Whitworth, any small space

where art camouflages lust. Beware

the well-placed nude by Moore,

the smooth Hepworth marble, dusted last night,

now lit by a small blinking red light

signalling alarm if approached too closely . . .

–excerpt from “The Art of an Affair” in To Sip Darjeeling at Dawn by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective, Chicago 2011). First published in The Pedestal.
