The 7 Days of CryAction 6: 1222-1264

Goya, Saint Francis Borgia, 1788

Ghoulish Goya painted
the cadaveric colors
of an already dead man
adding misshapen monsters
as in Pickman’s portraits
but in spite of terror
a successful illustration
does delight collectors;
[1230] my colors and lights
of poetical prowess
my shocking shading
will hopefully please
my brilliant readers
making horror amiable.
But to avoid annoyance
these dry dreadful sands
where slimy things crawl
will wind up off topic:
[1240] Let’s turn over a new. . .
hey look at those quirky
creatures capturing us
those flying formations
born of dead bodies
or without using sperm
made by Mother Nature
in her wet womb.
Such clusters causing
bore rather than fright
[1250] occupy cloud-like
the sky and my eyes,
fetch me a fly-whisk!
Let your light chase ’em
O Father here apparently
clashing with holiness
as a Lord of the flies!
Anyway as far as words
can say when inspired,
I declare that those days
[1260] adult beings were born:
The respective specimens
of plants and animals
popped up perfect
when voiced in Eden.
