At the Bayou
At the Bayou
Mixed media painting

Sweaty Louisiana Blues,
Playing backwards for the invocation of demons.
On the piano the taxidermy alligator is wagging his tail,
While the banjo spills out mean spirited genies.
The shrimp boat captain is in the picture too;
Being hustled by mosquitoes more persistent
than a predator’s jaw muscle.
What an appropriate finale,
after a long day at the bayou.
