If only Picasso had podcast

If only Picasso had podcast

from a smartphone,

on his palette,

Guernica might have had more impact.

Women and children might have brought Franco down.

Picasso might have screamed

“The Luftwaffe made paint cling like barnacles to this bloody canvas”.

Le noir, blanc et gris

Das schwarz, weiss und grau

The black, white and grey

The bull and the horse


These may be episodes from Season One,

recorded in a Paris studio.

As it was, Pablo did the best he could,

to spread his message

like a virus pulling subscribers,

reproducing itself,

seeping into the ears of a few strangers who watched him work.

If only Picasso had podcast,

and shared his sweat on Twitter,

his voice would have gone viral,

Guernica would be alive

wherever massacres matter.
