Jesus, Caravaggio :: dVerse Poets Pub


Who are these men in red?

What are they doing?

Heads are rolling.

Here’s one of the men in red who has horns, this one,

Another with black wings,

Black halo on one.

Jesus, Caravaggio,

What are you showing me?

Hey Caravaggio, it’s a nice night out, why don’t you go paint it?

But no, Caravaggio wants to paint people,

And when you paint people, you wind up with heads on platters.

Or he did, anyway.

Then he killed a man over a tennis match and was on the run for four years til he died.
