NaPoWriMo Days 1&2

Here's the first two "installments" of the long poem Sarah and I will be attempting to write based on the painting below. You will be privy to it as it grows and changes (how lucky are YOU?!?!). I imagine some days will just be spent revising and not adding anything...who knows. Anyway:

SELF PORTRAIT AS SLOW GROWTH

Employing microvilli, Heffernan's
landscape absorbs its color

from the figure of herself, so that
the bouffant bouquet

must be leaching from some
internal source. Perhaps the body

is a prism; perhaps this symbiosis
has a third wheel.
