Shroud Black Canvas

9 more days...


From shroud black canvas
An image numbs your mind
Empty tortured eyes
Dripping pus yellow
You stand paralyzed
 A thousand gravities
Threatening to bury you
Where you stand

That's what my painter's blocks feel like. The blank surface mocking me and I can't move an inch to draw or paint anything on it. It IS very scary when that happens. - G

Pat, my mind is numb. You truly were denied Halloween as a kid, weren't you? Reading your stories, I know this is true - but must you curse us now??? :-)

DrSoosie said...

the one line about pus reminds me f the Beatle's song " I am the Walrus." The line "yellow-matter custard dripping from a dead dog's eye." is an absolute favorite of mine. It is descriptive and disgusting all at once. Your poem is the same..which is why I like it!

This extremely fascinating to look at, Pat. I wonder how in the world you did that or is really a ghost in disguise.

Brenda - You are correct! And now....IT'S PAYBACK TIME...

DrSoosie - I am the eggman, they are the eggmen. I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob. Thanks Susie!

Lynne - To tell you the truth, I toned this one down a little!

Clarissa - Thanks! We're just getting started!

Pam - Just a little low-tech special effect...

Cheeseboy - Thanks so much! I appreciate it.

Amazing...I too immediately thought of the Beatles line. That has stuck with from the first time I heard it/saw the lyric. Creepy stuff Pat.
