To A Woman Passing By

@ Obst

1801 S Peoria St, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Friday, September 21st, at 7PM

To a woman passing by,

I have watched you on the street, placing foot in front of foot, darting through the mass of God’s hellish creation.
I have been irreparably struck by your image, which is always departing from my view.
With the abandon of your steps, you have won my admiration.
I love you for your grace because your walk is so unloving and your movement so unending.
I love you for your presence because your sight vaporizes and your gaze unnerves.
I love you for the indifferences you cast and the interest you represent.
I love you for your taste because it ruthlessly discards whatever cannot last, for you have shown me that the ever-new remains the same old thing.
But most of all, I love the cloudy dreams your profanity inspires.
Your’s is a rejuvenating sight, and for that I dedicate these works, my first efforts in your name.

The softness that fascinates, the pleasure that kills!
I may be an incomplete man, but I am very passionate.
