Transcript "Portrait of the Artist as Two Young Women" Old hands, both of us, at consciousness-raising sessions, at organizing, and at our respective crafts, and old acquaintances — we've both returned, not having really left, to this: You paint my portrait while I sit for you, writing a poem in my head about your painting me writing. Old hands, both of us, we cannot help but try to raise each other's consciousness, reorganize each other. You care for the pigments themselves. Your glance quickens the practiced brush, streaking my eyes and hair in umbers and siennas, both raw and burnt. You mix my face with ochre, cadmium red and orange, titanium white. Daylight is clarified by lemon yellow strontium, the floorplanks scoured with ivory black. I care for the words themselves: alizarine, viridian, cobalt. I turn "cerulean" over In my mouth, curling my tongue around it; I roll it along my teeth, surreptitiously, like a sourball. Our methods impede each other. You ask me to sit still.
