What Would Frida Kahlo Do?

Tags: paint write

She wouldn't try 
to pluck her eyebrows
to please you 
she'd celebrate it
she'd Paint it 
even emphasize that
third eye

She'd paint a crime scene 
with her husband 
cutting her up to pieces
in response to him having sex
with her own sister

She'd move far away to France
& paint the gory scenes
a million times over 
her twin with the same heart 
they came
from all over to see

She'd cut her hair & dress like
a man in spite of him 
I bet she went to the witch doctor
and conjured up spells

& Diego didn't even know it
but he knew well enough
he fucked up & would stay
at her bedside till the end

That's what I will do 
in light of all this 
place a needle
in the poppet 
in place of all the pain 

in those blank spaces 
& chant at midnight  
I'd write this poem
for relief  
I'd paint the pain
and frame it
display it

so that the world could see
what I ever saw 
in someone who 
didn't even paint
write poems
or even loved me enough
to even get credit
for it

Frida, well, she'd just
laugh at you
& flick her
