Paint-Eater


Wordle: van g
please visit more takes on the duality of color at dverse

your mutilated ear
has stained my porch deep crimson 
and if i look closely enough
i can make out a starry sky
in between the folds of cartilage
of your ruined flesh.

Ooh, I did sort of winced at how it might be painful. It's a bit frightening if that is how it works. Interesting write.

I have such a strong feeling for VanGogh and his work. I'm so glad you chose him to respond to the prompt, and you did it with such beauty in a few well-chosen words. Thank you...
