Salvador Dali:(On hearing of his death)

The crying harlequin’s

sculpted tears

empty the ornate fountains,

where flames blind the prophets

who only arise once crowds

give cheer to the

elevation of mountains

at angles seen

only at sunrise

when Alice dreams

of empty fountains


by tears.

Aesthetic note:- this poem is best enjoyed whilst looking at a Dali painting;any Dali painting.
