There is no...only paint


There is no...
only paint
no God in Heaven above
no hell below
or is that no God in Hell below
but the devil plays merry with us
high up in Heaven's own hell
only paint
only write
anxiety stew for tea tonight
Betty's dying
and there's nothing i can do
only pain
only paint
oily paint
oily tears dripping down
the stew-stained canvas laptop screen
the need for this medicine, paint
for this affirmation, words
we're dying, and nothing we can do
except paint poems and write paintings
