The word: Recalcitrant
Finally, I bought a piece of his art.
I’ve admired his paintings for three years now, three seasons of Boise’s Art in the Park. Finally this year I went home with a triptych to go above my fireplace. It consists of three canvases connected by a drip of wine – from the bottle (on the top canvas) through the table (the middle canvas) and onto the head of an unsuspecting dog (bottom). The title: “Worst Case Scenario.”
The Stranger: Paul Sloan
His Word: Recalcitrant
The poem I wrote:
If it has a heart that beats
killing isn’t simple (true).
There are too many of us here
(true): we all want
to make something lasting
(t/f). There are ways to get around
having a heart that beats
but none of them are worth it (t/f).
We’d like to cooperate with you
instead of being only bare
hands and mischief, recalcitrant
makers alone on our homesteads
(false, false, false).
The Challenge: Do you have a poem in you on this word? Write one here.
