I want to be a surrealist painting
by Alison Ross
I want to be a surrealist painting.
I want to have flowers for fangs.
I want to exist only as the aborted shadow of your shrieking eyes.
I want to be a pop art painting.
I want to be replicated for 15 minutes
in the form of a Campbell’s Tomato Soup can
I want to lick ten steins.
I want to be a Rodin sculpture.
I want to be eternally kissed
under the gates of hell.
I want to exist
as the shadow of a kiss
for the first 15 minutes
of a replicated eternity.
