Pamela Mordecai is one of the most brilliant & witty of our poets, a real unproper jewel-person.”

Kamau Braithwaite

Sunflowers

Vincent Van Gogh, the sunflower man
cut off his ear when Paul Gauguin
wouldn’t stay to paint with him
in southern France.

I burnt my veil and wedding dress
scarred both my cheeks
tattooed rosettes
along my arms with cigarettes.

We both needed a man to stay.

You think that it was
loneliness? I don’t
think so. Madness
has always been my guess.

From the TRUE BLUE OF ISLANDS
