Art Mag 127

brought to you by Tess Kincaid, The ever different always amazing pictorial writing prompt.  Go visit, join in or just read the amazing takes on the picture below for this Mag 127.
Figure Eight, 1952, by Franz Kline

ART

What do we see in art? 
Do the pieces make a whole
Or is it only parts?

First I see the Figure Eight
Because I'm told
That's what this makes.

Then I look closer still
And see a mad man
Armed to kill.
I look again and I see
A smiling face
Looking at me.
Art imitates life they say
It's all in the perception
What's your choice today?

I absolutely love the way you did this! Taking pieces of the picture! I agree...same picture different words...all perception of the same thing!
