Lucian ( 1922-2011)

July 25, 2011

Lucian, eagle-eyed monster

you  flayer  you

slathering people on your linen like so much snot

you glorifier of corroded and corroding flesh

scratching bodies squirming in rictus

fetal, fallacious

with your bristles

you with the ancestor

you broke his Viennese meershaum pipe

you did

and busted through his Talmudic vest

preferring worship  in the muck

and they say you were some sort of Judas

I disagree.

Your brush will be missed-

paint the sky anything

but blue.
