The Woman Of Discontent

by Justin Chopin

The Woman of Discontent

The disembodied head

Of the strange, sorrow-eyed lady.

Looks upon a world.

That is clearly crazy.

A world where stars

Are inverted in the aquatic sky.

A world where the fishes stream through,

These celestial bodies as they pass by.

A world that holds no ground

In logical rationalizations.

For it is a world created by

The eternal energies of the imagination.

Kind of a weird, surreal, psychedelic rock kind of poem that I composed based upon this very melancholic and somber painting of a woman's head. Hope you enjoy.
