Picasso's Model

Picasso's Model from my book, The Flyiing Unibrow

 saw things through a prism
confounding as astigmatism
producing a major schism
between what's real and painted.

 I saw a model passing through
who looked like Dora Maar–it's true!
 reflected in my mirror view.
Here's what we two had to do:

I screamed,
She wept,
I fainted.

Just What She Always Wanted

Vincent van Gogh
ran out of dough
Concomitantly he cut off his ear.
 How drear!

When the ladies scolded him,
 Their chides emboldened him
It was clear
Vincent could no longer hear!

He queried his escort while drying a tear,
"What do you think I besmear when I leer
 I've just got this lust for life. No fear!
My brother will take care of us, dear.

I assure you I'll be able to pay some day
After I paint Sunflowers...OK?
Then Starry Night, so we won't have to fight
 Besides, I love you. You're my delight.

Perhaps, dear one, it may seem queer
That I drink absinsthe rather than beer
So out of the ordinary I do want to veer
I'm giving you part of me... my ear!"
