An abstract art

by WH Chong

IM Emily Kame Kngwarreye


Outrageous, the flag of beauty

as day revolves to night, a sky

thick with stars that fall like snow,

snow that feints shapes and

culls sound and muffles distance –

a white shroud for realism. Faith

is made manifest in an abstract art,

the dreaming eye that trusts the world

already made and already perfect.
