Just In
for Van Gogh

I absolutely had to stop for Van Gogh - I'm weird like that. :) So I read it and then felt compelled to review, and who am I to interfere with my crazy whirlwind thoughts? (That and I make it a point to review as much as I possibly can) So here I am with perpetual praises and no way of verbalizing myself, which is often a difficulty for me. I especially loved the line, "He will need crimson paint" and what that hints to (despair I'm assuming, but I could be wrong).

Kudos. Brilliant poem.

Three cheers for citations from Sylvia Plath! "Dying is an art. I do it exceptionally well." (You may or may not particularly like Plath; as for me, I adore her). At any rate, I like that the quote was interspersed with elements related to van Gogh. Adieu, Kat

Very tongue-in-cheek, the way I interpret it. The Van Gogh allusion works nicely.

THe pacing is a bit off in the 2nd and 3rd lines, but you still captured Van Gogh's torment very well. In fact, the pacing sort of helps..
