the touches
of a winter morning

trickles from a black back
and this time the white watches
mesmerised
in the beauty
black holds
within
refeguring
everything about this world
in black
a realisation
as innocent
as the black women's eyes

ok about the painting it is Edward Manet's and is called"Olympia". Inspite of the fact that three-fourth of the canvas is covered in the nudity of the white body, and the black is almost lost in the back ground, yet what foregrounds the whiteness is the black in the back. I know I am just reducing the women into two colours, but I grant this much for my obsession of the two shades which in themselves say so much. Let us redo the painting foregrounding the black woman and casting the nude white female in the back...umm how would that be?
