The Sistine Madonna --by Brayan

We are Raphael's Cherubs 
and you are sketching me 
in a panic
in the style 
of Keith Haring. 
I tell you to stay calm,
"we are only looking wistfully into the window of a baker's shop," I say.

  1. I love this poem! For me it is a small, intimate moment that captures something bigger than the "you" and the "I" in the poem. It says something that you can't quite explain rationally, which is a wonderful thing poetry does.
