Body, Soul, and MEPHISTO
by Annette Meyer

Temptation is the allure, the weapon of MEPHISTO,
A Faustian legend, a devil disguised as a religious man.
He/She lives:

In the minds of all who breathe,
In the bodies of all who sleep,
In the souls of all who are not what they seem.

Color him red, or color him green,
Adorn her with jewels or with flowers.
Whether clothed or unclothed,
Black or white space envelopes
The muscles and sinews of ripe bodies
And the mystery of what could be.
Only MEPHISTO seems with purpose inside this three-act melodrama.
Even then,
Are those horns on his ugly, ferocious head, or rabbit ears?

About the Author

Mephisto, or Mephistopheles, is at the center of literary and musical works by Goethe, Gounod, Liszt, Mann, Marlowe, and Shakespeare. A Meyer is drawn to the character because of the record of MEPHISTO as a stealer of souls by tempting his prey to indulge in the carnal pleasures of the body. To the author, art and artists should portray both the good and the bad in their revelation of the basic undercurrents of life.

Because of the power of the brush and the pen to influence and uplift audiences, Annette Meyer depicts men, women, flowers, and things in settings intended to stimulate mental agitation or serenity. Further examples of the painted images of A Meyer are available, in part, at the Hunter College Libraries Special Collections, or from RoseDog Books in the following titles: Inside/Outside, Women and Things at Rest, Daydreams, Flowers, People & Things, and Color Rhythms of the Universe.

(2012, paperback, 74 pages)
