an oil painting of the fool

he is

leather parchment
stretched against
a screaming skeleton
and miles of veins
filled with sludge
like sorrow
all that separates him
from the yawning chasm
of hell inspired fantasy
is the tethered
weather worn soul
like the flag
forgotten
in the wars
of time long gone

the poor bastard
