Despair

Stockholm, 1992
Oil on canvas, 65x50 cm

I?!

You heard the palette’s roar
into the conflicting feelings
when the years, the silences, the chopped efforts
assaulted you

I??!!

As if all had been swept away
Now you feel the driftwood of existence
Now you know!
Nothing can be built
Everything is painfully present
in the moment

The Devil’s stare
reaches you even when you shut your eyes
All you have is
the scream
