Ekphrasis

Ekphrasis.

I beg your pardon?

Writing poetry about art.

An article on this referred to Kevin Young’s “ecstatic” poem about the artist – Jean-Michel Basquiat – so checked that out. Because I like the work of that artist. Also, ecstatic sounds fun. Shouldn’t be a bore.

And then found, even better found this 2 minute delight “Aunties”, describing a whole subculture.
