He Put It to His Ear

SKIN – Vincent Van Gogh
(Bill Mallonee)

Look at yourself in the mirror
… you’re all rumpled red, stubbled, and gaunt
You walk a dead end path in a dry corn field
… and now this morose response

Your princess she don’t wanna see you
… no your princess she don’t wanna hear
So Vincent he picked up the blade
… and he put it to his ear

-Bill Mallonee, “Skin” (Blister Soul – 1995)

    Very powerful! Wow. I am a fan of art, poetry, AND Van Gogh, so this is like a triple whammy!
    Thank you!
