The Stream

Original Oil Painting on Canvas

By Helen Norton

150 x 120 cm

2000 Bye Bye Sunfly

The Stream

On my way to the place

Where I was to find

The woman with the broad face

I found myself in a bind

The journey on the river bed

Was soon ripped apart

With the force of a nuclear head

And a trampoline on my heart

She tipped a cobalt pot

From  heavens invisible

Where once there was not

And made my control miserable

I think I’m brave when I piss in the wind

And then she squats down

And cuts the land in two

With her stream
