Poem from: Let The Poet’s Come & Stop Me

First Weekend In Heaven 

If Picasso and Dali

Sat together in chairs

Would they talk about art

Would they both want to share


“I like the flow of The Seated Woman

Dali might start

“Well, I loved your Still Life – Fast Moving

True innovative art”


Would they have a cup of coffee

Or a bottle of wine

Would either suggest collaborating

After they’ve loosened with time


There is one thing

I’d sure like to know

Would Picasso paint Dali

And Dali, Picasso


“I find art is lovely torture”

Dali would confess

Agreeing Picasso would whisper,

“Dear Dali you sing it best”


First weekend in Heaven

I’d send out invites

Including Dali’s mistress

And, of course Picasso’s wife


Because I’d love to listen

And watch the affairs

Of Picasso and Dali

Sitting together in chairs

My First Dinner in Heaven


I want Shepard and Banksy to paste the walls

Dali to arrange the furniture

Rockwell to prepare dinner

And Picaso to choose the wine


I want Van Gogh and O’Keefe to choose the flowers

Gould to play his piano

Edith Piaf to sing

And Ms. Audrey Hepburn to be my girl


I want Dr Suess and Gorey to trade stories

Jane Goodall to inspire us

Fred Astaire to teach us steppin’

And Arno Rafael Minkkinen to photograph us all


I want my mother and father to be kissing

All my old pets to be young and playing

My old teddy bear living

And all my heroes as proud as anything


I want to eat, drink and laugh with everyone

While Rembrant and Basquiat work together,

Drunk off hot wine, painting us all

At my first dinner in heaven
