Peter Jeffrey: Homage

Homage   As David Hockney wears odd socks I had thought that I would too; Sort of an homage to Hockney And in part to Howard Hodgkin, Who also liked a stinging flash Of green, or gay vermilion slash. To add homage to Hokusai I’d sport a white-flecked turquoise tie, Like that wave off Kanagawa With purple Fuji in its eye. Peter Jeffrey
