Boy Bitten By A Crayfish

Boy Bitten By a Crayfish

When women seen with no powers to create

Vessel to feed male seed for generations

She could make images live and update

Both of procreation and creation.

Once drew a painting of a laughing girl

Sent to Michelangelo to review

Quickly returned the painting with a hurl

Draw on the subject of crying child anew.

She painted “Boy bitten by a crayfish”

Tear-eyed brother weeping over the cut

The sister trying much hard to appease

And make peace with great master’s guts.

This feat, noticed by artists of her time

Was placed with “Cleopatra” in prime.

 Fifth place win
in Cindy's contest

** I was inspired to write this poem by her painting BOY BITTEN BY CRAYFISH, one of her earlier painting**
