brush in hand i sat before a vase of flowers an arrangement of the inexpensive unexotic and thought to paint it in perhaps romantic style
and then i wondered why it had been a long spell of pretty words and selling nothing just another piece to be buried in a backwash of compliments a tasteless stew of fluff and neither do they pay the bills
all the rage at being praised and staying poor exploded i dropped the brush and knifed the canvas black and thick smearing it with the disappointment boiling in my blood along with flecks of obscurity the demonskin in which an artist lives
and then the vase a toxic dream glowing radioactive to hold the ragged flowers bleeding into one another a louche bouquet scooped from the gutter of despair
when i'd transfused the poison in my veins to canvas and stood back surveying what i'd done i was satisfied
it wouldn't please the patrons in the middlebrow milieu who praised and never bought my flowers but in paint it was the truth of what i'd say if they could hear me ~ copyright 2017 RC deWinter
