Crazed horses in her eyes

My Ekphrasis Is A Fraud
by Michele Seminara

Hands
hard
on the head of the stick
shoved into his mouth
to choke violent eruptions

Eyes
crazed horses
restrained beneath
brows of extreme malcontent

She
with her handkerchief
twisting and twisting
a noose around the wrist
of despair’s swollen neck

This is the picture I used to mask our love’s lament

*Inspired by Scottish artist Thomas Faed’s painting of a miserable couple, entitled “Faults on Both Sides”.
