Frustrations of the Reincarnated Vincent Van Gogh

15 Aug

Here on holiday
From working drudgery
I realise
That I’m the reincarnation of Vincent Van Gogh

There in the mirror
His face stares at me
His haunted eyes
Scrappy beard on sticky-outy cheekbones

Then it dawns on me
I cannot paint for shit
Which is a bummer
What with people’s expectations and all

And it’s difficult
To go back, forget it
When one summer
You find out you’re the reincarnation of somebody better
