fāz/Just One More

Just One More


because I was a leaf

riding a stream of moments

to the sea

resistance was futile

time had run out

except for one day

enough for paint to dry

before the flight

one more was possible

just one more


Just One More. 18×14″. Acrylic on paper on panel.

Painting and poem by clinock.

    1. Actually Jo Nell, the only sadness really was leaving Mexico where I had spent a large part of last winter painting this ‘faz’ series, hence the reference in the poem to the flight. I had one day to pack and to paint one more piece. This one is it. It is the last of my 2015 paintings from San Miguel.


  1. Really love this one, John. And that feeling of “just one more” thing to express, to create, to get out of you–glad you were swept away to produce one more.
