"Pissed Painting, 1977"
or "The Pope of Pop meets Camus"

Warhol took your face

in his long, pale hands,
maneuvered toward your unrepentant eye.
Clucked at his weary stained disciple:
"HeinrIci, use the ink of Cosmo Girl No. 2."

The hand-held squeegee
brayed, bled and wheezed
your inner menage,
and prodigious.

Right before the flash,
You said you would sober up.
He said you never looked better,
oxidized in chartreuse and red,
in pop shamanic
he pronounced you dead.

Andy refused to let you go,
kept you an original derelictus,
In the back hall closet
chatting up Jackie O and eyeing
Marilyn's gilded triptych!
"Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you."
