Ol’ Bloody Brush… by Bogdan Dragos

Picture taken from Pinterest


the old man stank

but he

stank more

of booze and cheap

tobacco than

filth

his mouth missed

a lot of

teeth

and his eyes

would never

look

in the same

direction at once

but worst of

all were his hands

Now those were

really messed up

He claimed he had

paint tanks

under his nails

and he wasn’t lying

he was mad

but not a liar

He could paint

wherever he was

on any surface

And he did

pressing the stump

of his fingers

against walls and

furniture

triggered immediate

bleeding

and then he

would trace on and

draw something

Usually a penis or

some hairy cunt or

some silhouettes

fucking or

something like that

Then he’d step back

admire his creation

and laugh

and suck at his

bloody fingers

Ol’ Bloody Brush

was a celebrity

around the

block

He never had

to buy a

drink for

himself

There was always

someone to treat him,

an admirer

a fan, a disciple

Yeah, at 66

Ol’ Bloody Brush

was living the life

unlike other wannabe

artists who devoted

their existence to

the craft and got

nowhere

These guys,

they had the talent

and the drive

bout Ol’ Bloody Brush,

he had the madness

and the world

was coming to learn

the difference
