Indian Returned Bowed Head

Charles Lovato

About The Indian Returned Bowed Head

On verso, "By C.F. Lovato, Silo Star Rt. 72, Pina Blanca, N.M. 87041"

"I bow my head
I wish myself back to the beginning
Back to the hills and plains - Back to the good days
The days the earth held me to its breast
The days when the days were days - nights were nights
Now I walk amidst the sounds of sirens and broken glass
Tears blending with the stency of unswept streets and humid alleys
The many dark stairs - the long hours of wait for night
Self-made illusions my only comfort and relief
Unwanted yet welcomed intrutions (sic) into sanity
Bent lights - warped dreams - neon feelings
Thoughts wrapped in cool silk and warm velvets
Paving my own way street downward
I feel myself falling - to meet me - a concrete bed
The shuffling of feet - unwanted stares
A tear falls - with it some pride - some dignity"

Clearly a very special man wrote this poem, one I wish I had had the privilege of knowing.

About the Artist
