Apple-Face Speaks

(after Magritte)

This is not an apple.
I am not wearing a suit.
You are mistaken
about the bowler hat.

Whether this is a canvas
and I am paint
is open to discussion
but only when

you’re ready to admit
this is not a poem,
you are not a reader
and – empirically –

I do not have a face.

– Neil Fulwood

editors note:

This is not a spastic, ekphrastic poem. Nice! (Inspired by the picture, Son of Man, by Rene Magritte – check it out.) – mh clay
