I Still Feel You There

Sudden bliss, excited tryst, an affair to soothe all quarrels in my heart...
Tiny lies, justified by the waxing tides of love...
Simple little pleasures unfold, wrinkled and frayed but there,
Of the greatest magnitudes.

Moonbeams stray, rain pounds, a small frayed bit of screen whistles as the wind blows through,
Bare thighs, intensify the mild winter cold abound...
Breath scatters as the air circles ‘round....
From the heat of your mouth.

Beautiful lines, hips curve, tangled in the wanton sheets,
How to say no, when desire unfolds so serenely in a waiting soul?
Eyes closed, imagining things that were never really there...
A common dream this is, of lust.

But when alone, it's strange, I still feel you there.

 "In Bed" by Ron Mueck (2005)


  1. Australian artist Ron Mueck was the son of German immigrants. He born in Australia to German parents. He first gained artistic attention as a model maker and puppeteer for children's television program "Shirl's Neighbourhood" and the Jim Henson film "Labyrinth" starring David Bowie. He established his own company in London, making photo-realistic props and animatronics for the advertising industry, and then transitioned to fine art, collaborating with his mother-in-law, Paula Rego, to produce small figures as part of a tableau she was showing. Using resin, fiberglass, silicone, and many other materials, Mueck constructs hyperrealistic likenesses of human beings that may be many times larger or smaller than expected. "In Bed" is a sculpture made from polyester resin, fiberglass, polyurethane, horse hair, and cotton; measuring 161.9 x 650 x 395 cm, it belongs to the Queensland Art Gallery.
