Freud’s Bowery

For Lucian Freud and his model, Leigh Bowery


The artist means to take control; ribboning linen,

preening paint (ochre, ebon, gold!), laying

light in oily waves to an image


he creates: one absurdly out-sized, nude,

hairless man, mounded bellies hung over dancer’s gams,

long mauve penis ripening with blood


while eyes once lost in a sea of fat and skin

press forward to command, first the painter,

then those who stand in the gallery gaping.


Susan Wallack, reprint from “Threepenny Review,” Vol. 19
