first wanted to point to two of the most engrossing blogs i have come around in a while so CHECK THEM OUT:
arif khan @ http://arifkhan00.blogspot.com
and gladys @ http://makeweight.blogspot.com
* Also, to the comments in the last post “the cristos image” – the questions posed at the end of that post are i think central to “Trilogy” and i hope others will join the discussion there.
Finally, today’s post is short…section  – one of the few times (maybe the only here) that H.D. mentions by name another artist (the painting she is referring to is up above); ENJOY!
He might even be the authentic Jew
stepped out from Velasquez;
those eye-lids in the Velasquez
are lowered over eyes
that open, would daze, bewilder
and stun us with the old sense of guilt
and fear, but the terror of those eyes
veiled in their agony is over;
I assure you that the eyes
of Velasquez’ crucified
now look straight at you,
and they are amber and they are fire.
