Poem: Representation

By: JD DeHart


To take the word and conjure
it in mixed media, to take another’s
narrative and wrap it in our own
metaphor, playing the game of placing
or noting emerging codes, to take
many paragraphs and truncate them
in a few verses, each word is a symbol,
oil swirl painting idea on canvas,
a representation of experience, complete
and yet incomplete, already here
and not yet arrived.
