April 10: Stan Rice's "The Fragment of Statue"

Stan Rice, who died in 2002, was a visionary painter and a poet with a gift for miniatures—he often noticed the natural eloquence of the smallest things that speak to us.

The Fragment of Statue

How is it
The marble
Looks whole.

Full of its power
The lips
And chin of
The feminine

Not that the whole
Would not have
Power but

How does the fragment
At all.
