Moan


Remedios Varo (1908-1963) Surrealist painter.




Still trying to understand 

the reason for the brevity of life. 

Still trying to understand 

the glow of the roses at dawn, 

the moan of the ladies

autocomforting the night.

The sweet verses of a dying insect, 

the anomaly of the black stars, 

and this desolation of lies

within a monitor of tv. 

The joy of awkward men and

the sadness of the clever men. 


I'm still trying to understand 

why life is so short to understand.
