He had gone on  spreesan  outsider  knocked to his knees.
He’s been blown  awaybut  reserves  judgment
in  part  so as not to be judged. And it’s no  use.
It had been  written  on the wall; a  window  to his psyche,
an  intimate  glimpse to his  fearsome  body  of work.
If he must be colored,  paint  him: Survivor!
