I'm Walt. And I'm Marie Elena.
This is the collaboration of two kindred spirits; partners in rhyme;
"the best friends we've never met."
All "Across the Lake. Eerily."

Eyes closed,
I visualize a muddied canvas.
An image I hesitate to recognize as myself
Peers into a mirror,
Horrified at the malevolent apparition reflected.
A disquieting consciousness of her inability
To expunge the source is clearly evident in her eyes.
The Artist smiles,
Then bathes the canvas
In a soothing, pastel wash.
Gentle strokes flow with ease,
As the very canvas emits light.
An image I long to recognize as myself
Peers into a mirror,
And sees the face of Jesus.

Marie Elena
