Van Gogh’s crows

 

the symbolism is expressed in the brushwork of a few seconds etc.

a flick of the wrist and it’s done

not the dull cowboys at the bright supermarket

signifying where the posse is laid ambush for

in Yuma territory or thereabouts

or the girlish echoes of a ghost town in the West entirely imaginary

birds of night closing in on the day at the start
