The_ScreamThe Scream (Edvard Munch)

The Scream

There would be no subdued start
no moan or groan, no tremulous rumbling
no hint of discontent deep in the vocal cords
no gradual crescendo
to the peak
of an intense

scream

NO

It began how it would end
high pitched agony of breath
tearing through human flesh
a tsunami roar of despair
against a blood red sky
straight from an
Edvard Munch painting
