Art as Flirtation and Surrender

In your light I learn how to love.

In your beauty, how to make poems.

You dance inside my chest,

where no one sees you,

but sometimes I do,

and that sight becomes this art.

"Rumi" by Mark di Suvero, 1991 -- found at Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City.
Keep seeing references to this fellow; seems everyone knows of him but me. Then its kismet after coincidence! The poem is by him also, naturally.
