Toulouse-Lautrec, an ode

Are we right in seeing
between the pictures
that Lautrec finished
stylistic resemblances
peculiar to himself

Different worlds
shown with a cigarette
a half-empty bottle of wine
her tired face undoubtedly
haunting the cabarets
the streets
the circus devoted

The spirit reveals composition
created full of life
and not accidental

Lautrec painted ablaze with provocation
a vulture eying its prey

He was at his most eloquent
in describing the impression
of being determined by chance
