Concrete or Abstract

What is concrete
to divide it from abstract?
two parts sand one part water
paint on a basement wall
family portraits
still lifes, now long dust

What is abstract
to divide it from concrete?
two parts serious one part laughter
paint on a basement wall
incompatible relationships
life never still, now star dust


What is the real world
to divide it from imagination?
two parts water one part sand
paint on a basement wall

here today gone tomorrow
still born child of cosmic lust
