While walking through
a print store,
I was confronted by
Van Gogh’s paintings-

I thought to myself
How they define
a period
in art.

I feel his
strength and
vibe, his
brushstrokes
so full of
life.

There must be
thousands
of prints with his
Sunflowers and
Starry Nights.

So unfortunate,
that
not a penny
was given
to him-
for such
priceless art.
