Andrew Lansdown: Two Poems

The Spatter Painter 1 After the Art With teeth a little gritty and lips roughly rouged the spatter-painter absentmindedly as he stares picks ochre from his knuckle hairs.   2 After the Artist   Going his way with the back of his hand reddened the spatter-painter has no conception his stencil is the last wave of his people. Andrew Lansdown   Sacred Sakura 1 Bindi   A Buddhist temple it may be, but, courtesy of the cherry trees, that statue of an abbot is wearing a Hindu dot! Andrew Lansdown
