The South Window

Given the size of the frame
And the dusty green and brown
Rhomboids, there’s a Cézanne feel,

Complete with motionlessness,
Complete with orderliness.
Now how much meaning is there,

Now that you’ve dropped in Cézanne?
A lot more, if you’re the sort
Who’s thought often of Cézanne,

None, if Cézanne’s a strange name
To you, a foreign language.
Just what is a Cézanne feel?

The window frame can’t contain
Any meaningful essay,
But you are the south window.
