A Novel Impressionism
Just the facts alone may hold interest only for so long
Attributes acquired through observations is the song
When the slow and smooth hard-gotten arrives as real
Those individual perceptions are what the readers feel
Old fashioned novels remain committed and imbued
To the endless pursuit of dogged verisimilitude
A better way may maintain a comic precision
While remaining devoted to each character's vision
A growing interest is a good place to meet
In areas of consciousness and dancing on your feet
Mature observations never go fast enough to fleet
With juvenile ones never remain in the back seat
Impressionism can show its face in a modern way
If devices of your own imagination have a say
Prose may take a route to affect the subject at hand
To grow a consciousness in characters once bland
Can the self-involved interact in interesting ways?
More so than the hyperalert in fast restless ways?
To create a better world is impressionism's aim
Accentuate the subject then make it fair game
