Ekphrasis: The Absolutely Naked Fragrance

[Poet's note:  First visit the MOMA site to view the image that inspired my poem.  Ekphrasis poetry is poetry about a work of art.  I chose The Absolutely Naked Fragrance by John McCracken.  I saw this piece at MOMA when I visited New York a couple of years ago.]

  1. Well, you got me. I came rushing to your blog to read about a new perfume, wondering--of course--what a naked fragrance might be.

    I am always interested in new art, even if it is puzzling.
