I prefer to write about something else, but I double back to myself once in awhile. Thank you for reading at Authorsden!

    

 

 

 

Pillar of Salt

   

I believed a man could change, 

So I put the past behind me

And began all over again.

But then one day I looked back,

And was turned into a pillar of salt.

The New Man was a very good act:

His performance was greatly appreciated.

Success was within his grasp,

But he turned around and looked back

And was turned into a pillar of salt.

The Old Man is a pathetic sight,

Beset by vengeance all around,

From which he cannot take flight

Because one day he looked back

And was turned into a pillar of salt.

They say salt heals the wounds

And keeps meat for a rainy day.

If only I could cry those salty tears,

I would never look back again.

The Miami Mirror
Shallow reflections in Miami. The weather is better, the women are mouth-watering, more people are on the take than on the make, the poverty and luxury are obscene, suggestions are not welcome, but you might fit in if you speak Spanish.


Additional information

"Painting was an abcess which drained off all the evil in me. Without a gift for painting I would have gone to the bad. What I could have achieved in a social context only by throwing a bomb, which would have led me to the guillotine, I have tried to express in art, in painting, by using colors straight from the tube. Thus I have been able to use my destructive instincts in order to recreate a sensitive, living and free world." Maurice de Vlaminck
