#4 Ekphrastic Poem (based on art)  

Subject: The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali  (y'know, the painting with the desert and the melting clocks)

Chloe Lynn





Carry on, you queens of time

in realms of dreams

and skies of brine.

Don’t languish here to pass the day,

as colors fade

and melt away.

Just carry on, all warped and bent,

a mere mirage

with nothing meant.

Stay not long, for the sun is bright,

and all fabric will fray

ere the coming of night.


The End
