In the midst of Goya’s black paintings

I fell

In love

With the image of the goat

And the

People

Cowering

In a circle

Reminiscent of

The Dybbuk,

The Devil

Casting shadows,

Pretending

Enchanting,

Ensnaring,

Encasing –

Smothering.

 

The peasants

Demoniacal

Passive in their observation,

Crooked fantasy;

Rosemary’s baby,

Polanski

And

Ira Levin

Together

&

Can’t not think of Woody Allen.

 

Who is the bovid now?

  1. Shudder!
    Shouldn’t Grayson Perry be wearing that dress?
    Is that the goat devil on the left and holding a skull, terrifying the peasants – guess there is a part of it in all of us.
    Nightmares!
