Chicagoetry: Like A Rembrandt In Candlelight

Like A Rembrandt In Candlelight

She moves
Like a Rembrandt
In candlelight:

There's a glimmer,
A flicker, that is signature.

The others lack dimension,
Somehow, in comparison,

Like the difference
Between the Great Plains
And the Kettle Moraine.

Her golds
And reds and flesh
Appear warmer,

Richer, more alive.
The effect
Is instantaneous.

Her grace seems balletic.
The only option, surrender.
