Surreptitious Look

Take a look at @JonasAlmgren’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/JonasAlmgren/status/598858097172606977?s=09

This is not a pic but a painting
Of a village in Autmn
In miniature.
A picture
Of careless sky and no people
Or signs of life.
The detail is fine
Art.
Silver catches my eye
Like tiny tinsel barbed wire
On a fence
Pricking the picture
On which I cannot superimpose
Another tincture or hue.
Dwellings unhuddled close together
Unrambled shacks
True,
But warm to my sight
Even as the colouring of straw or hay
Threatens a kind of dismay
Not unfolded but hinted.
Surreptitious memories from books and films and plays.
