Lot 506~ Gordon Mason

Neill Dallas Brown (1938 - 2003)
Bather and Black Dog, 1973
Pencil, 20cm x 20cm

She bathes out
her black dog day
in the calm pool
below the fringed wave.

Her breasts blanch
and magnify
as the surface sheen
snaps the cups.

Blades of surf
cage her hair
to her cheeks
and cut out the knots.

The wave drapes
over her shoulders
and the sky goes on
living above.
