New Poem by Dan Wilcox


Portrait of Marsden Hartley, undated, Helen Stein (1896-1964) Cape Ann Museum



Marsden Hartley’s eyes



Marsden Hartley’s eyes

stare out of Helen Stein’s portrait

into this Gallery ringed by his portraits

of the boulders of Dogtown

the paintings mostly red

or green, but always blue

like his eyes that stared outward

when the oils were wet

where the granite sat against the sky.
