A Painting in a Picture Frame

By Molly Amanda Wilson


What a beautiful arrangement

The aesthetics are really mind-boggling

At first it looks so harmonious but

On closer inspection you can really feel the stark contrasts

Those painfully bright streaks of red peeking through

Maybe it's a trick of the light but its extraordinary how multifaceted something so one-dimensional can look

Yes, it sure is a pretty, pretty picture

It reminds me of but is devoid of the twisting, rotting faces I swear I've seen somewhere before

Familiarity without cause upsets me

Especially when it distracts from such a delightful display


Delightful, delightful, delightful
