Painting Holes.

February 13, 2011

'The painter of the hole' by George Grosz

Painting holes
and more holes…
meaningless nothingness.

'Lovesick' by George Grosz

Red heart on black
blue velvet pistol
lovesick lassitude.
Stick men
hanging from
the tree of life.

'The City' by George Grosz

Blood-flecked fiery mayhem
lurching featureless faces..
apocalypse then.

'Going to work' by George Grosz

Under a daffodil-yellow sky
in a blue cold
lines of workers
into grey factories.

  2. I sense a somberness in all of these. It’s lovely how you use your poetry to explain how you feel about each piece of art. You coalesce with the artist very well, Peter. ❤
