Hilma AF Klimt only painted 
In sunglasses, even at night
If not she apparently fainted 
Since her paint was too bright

Boris Lurie never took any car
With even numbered plates
And said he only smoked cigars 
To disassociate socially from Yeats

Ai Wei Wei only wears his wristwatch
On Wednesdays. He might be 
Trying to send us some sort of message

On entering his apartment Rob could hear the sound of the television. Coming down the hall he noticed cardboard boxes sealed in duck tape with “Arthur’s clothes and books” written across them in scribbled black text. Arthur sat in the living room, despondent. The light coming from the television broke the darkness at intervals with iridescent flashes. Rob passed into the kitchen.

In the dim light of the stairwell Olivia couldn’t make out just where she was. There was an amber gloom as the afternoon sunlight seeped through the orange glass side panels around the front door. Robert groped for one of those push-button light switches that leaves the bulb on for a couple of minutes. He said that his place was on the first floor. He grabbed her hand and cried, “Come on!” This was the first time that Olivia had been to his place, though he’d stayed over at hers a few times since they’d started going out. The rather musty air of the stairs persisted on the landing.
