The Compromise

by Xanadu

Michel Angelo reflecting on his hands
Wings transforming out of biceps
Theriomorphic feature of greatness
And halo coronation of bowed head
Like a moon 'round Jupiter's mass
And earth featuring his background
Quarterly lit like Moon's ascendancy
Wondering how his limbs could perform
Creation of The Creation in Art and Nature
(And Nature after Art after Art
as it is in the I of the Beholder)
Compromise of God and Man
          Artist and Work of Art
In the Logos of the Eye
In the Icon of the Word
Incarnation and Wings in a Universe
Xanadu (Ofbeardenfame) for TimbookTu (July 2003)
(Thanks to Studio Museum in Harlem Alexander Austin and 1995 The Compromise)
