Matisse

she loved Matisse

like all girls do

wanted that blue cut out woman

on her wall

but strangely knew nothing

of Collioure Amelie scandales

while I appreciated Van Gogh

Dali Picasso

who she could not understand

though I tried explaining about light

playfulness in seeing

things as they are

rather than what they seem

which to me

was what old henri stood for
