    I was painting a still life this morning
    Of a throat lozenge sitting on a copy
    Of Tropic of Cancer
    The only thing weird about it
    Is that a year ago,
    I never thought I'd paint anything again
    I decided I wasn't ever gonna paint again
    It didn't bother me too much
    Warhol's dead,
    David Hockney's still alive
    I don't need to paint
    I painted over ten thousand paintings
    Sad ones, funny ones, dark ones, and light ones
    I've done haystacks
    And rich old ladies by their pools
    Wearing nothing but a scarf
    I've painted everything there was to paint
    Now it was time to sit back
    Give interviews
    Hang out at club med
    Get on the internet
    Take stock of what I've done
    You know, the best friend I ever had was a dog
    It sounds like a cliche unless it's happened to you
    Some days that dog was the only reason I even got out of bed
    That dog went everywhere with me
    And then I heard the crack addicts
    Were stealin' dogs and selling them for animal research
    It sounded like an urban myth to me
    Like the mouse in the Coke bottle
    But I started leavin' her at home after that
    You know, Paula was my wife for a while
    She ran off to Paris with the great grandson of Van Gogh
    A cartoonist who did fashion graphics for Le Monde
    When Paula left she took my dog
    I never saw her again
    Except in the court during the custody battle
    She won and got to keep the dog
    And I didn't speak to anyone for months
    You know sometimes it feels
    Like there's so much that you need
    Sometimes the world is upside down
    Sometimes it feels
    Like the only thing you need
    Is holdin' someone's hand as you walk through town
    I started hanging around with Dino-aca

    Cosa ne pensi di "Estelle" di Dan Bern?
