In the Picture

19 May 2019

By Philip Kuepper

Through the rain-spattered window
the boats appeared
smudges painted on the bay,
indistinct shapes caught between
the representational and the abstract.
They were both
boats, and suggestive of boats.
And so they were neither.
It remained to anyone seeing them
to make of them what they would.
