Poems inspired by paintings or paintings inspired by poems...

No Exit

If I could hide behind stained glass windows
it'd reveal who I am,
or at least distort who I am not.
If I could hide behind stained glass windows
I'd become saintly,
wouldn't I?
Or I'd become that as a Picasso painting,
a delightful distortion to the viewer's eye.
Note: There is a stained glass window in this painting but is now hidden under many layers of paint. See older posts of "No Exit" for stages of this painting. (Post titled, "Painting Layers and Layers and Layers" on Tuesday, December 27th, 2011.)
