Beautiful picture

Standing very close to a painting
The colours look bright and the brush strokes are golden
But its only when you take a step back
Which is a step too close
And look through the eyes of the buyer
You realise, you see
How the brush strokes burn the skin of the canvas
And the bright beautiful colours bleed into each other
Fighting, and killing the canvas slowly
It is performance, a war
Which colour survives
The canvas sacrifices its body for this deadly war

How can such beauty have a price tag
It is because beauty is violent

A picture is only beautiful
Because violence is pleasurable
Because you act blinded
Because you chose to picture it beautiful
