Dramatic lunacies


Jackson Pollock – There were seven in eight

deceit is here–
and it comes–

people pretend not
to see–

it’s here, i know–

surrounding us
eating us whole–

it’s here, i know!

deceit was here–
it came
and now it goes–


i’m crazy
or is it plain to see–

    All one need do is watch the election process. People are tossing away their integrity, and as one who fell hard a decade ago, it saddens me.

    You aren’t crazy.

      I know what you mean. It was election time in Brazil too and it is ridiculous! Scary, even.

  2. How true. It sure feels crazy when you try to trust again, doesn’t it?

    • Nanda said:

      Oh, it does! But I guess I’m stubborn: I always think it’s gonna get better and that in the end people are amazing!

    I remember seeing a video about Jackson Pollock, his life and work. I am glad to see one of his pieces here – and well placed with this poem (with its title).

    Nanda, I’m just wondering, should this be ‘eating US whole’? I am only wondering… “surrounding us
    eating is whole–” Wondering as I know typos are easy.

    As for deceit, that appears to be all too easy, for some.

      Hey, N!
      I just watched the movie Pollock, with Ed Harris playing him. He was such a disturbed character! And very genius with his new way of painting, without the brush touching the canvas – and with those amazing results! So I was looking some of his paintings to put in here… cause to me they’re so confused/confusing… And this one matched perfectly because of the title too.

      And yes, you were right! I corrected the typo! I read and re-read the poems thousand of times, but we start to get blind about those things, haha. Thank you so much for noticing!

      And yes, again! Some people looks pros when it comes about deceiving others.
