The beret and the overalls are artistic
uniforms of other times.
I paint naked, butt naked.
I’m covered with paint stains.
Multicolored, many colored, like the peacock
that boasts on the canvas.
A drop fell on my dick
I have a hard on ’cause
I get it when I paint.
The trout and the bottle of red wine
will not end as a still life –
I’ll drink the wine and I’ll let the fish
swim at the bottom of the painting,
Immediately under my loved one’s fish
she poses even when she’s not here.
I see her put on her make-up in the taxi
when she opens the door,
She enters the paining like
entering a tub of hot fragrant water,
she waits for me to rub her back
with my painting brush.
