Art Auction

The gavel raps the side of the podium

He’s talking fast

Pacing

Running out of things to say

Artwork flutters by

Color

Abstract

Renaissance

New artist

Famed

Infamous

He’s selling off a portrait of a little girl

One bid

Two bid

Her eyes are sad

Large

Askance

She speaks to me

Her eyes turn to me

Her pearl pink lips open

A single word

Traveling from the artist's paintbrush

To me personally

An intimacy

Between me and the artist

Going- Going – Going

SMACK

GONE!

And the little girl is back

Safe in her paining

She places a fat pink finger to her lips

And shushes me

Then she’s rushed off stage

Next bid
