Gogh Figure - Poem by William Coyne

I wish I owned my own little house,
with a few rooms, a cat and a mouse.
Free to hang upon my my walls
framed canvases, mirrors, clothes racks,

a few chairs to scatter about,
a colorful comfy wooden bed,
uneven, well trodden painted floors,
and open windows to let light in

illuminating grace and sin.
Surrounded by roughly painted textured walls,
coarsely finished furniture,
and brass hinged, creaky thin oaken doors

that open and close other rooms,
I may visit and wish to be alone,
I see suiting me well as a
castle where gentleman and fair ladies

dwell for their own affairs and airs.
Having neither house or a castle grand,
content before Van Gogh's I stand
and pass some sweet time imagining.
