And the gallery practically bursts with Zirker's joy.

THIS SKIN I'M IN THAT HOLDS AN

ANCIENT ARTIST'S HEART AND SOUL

THINS AND STRETCHES COLD WITH

EACH SUNSET'S DARK. YET, ONCE

AWAKE, A HORIZONTAL DREAMER

DREAMS UPRIGHT,  BRIGHT LIGHT

SHINING COLOR, LINE AND FORM,

WIELDING BRUSH WITH CANVAS

TIGHT, SLOWLY MOVING, SHAPES

RELEASING FROM MY HAND AN

INNER JOY.
