Picasso’s “Lobster & Cat”

In madness made apparent,
the lobster rose and drew,
sharp claws of bleak aggression;
the cat recoiled in fear.

From crusted oceanic depths,
the creature had emerged,
to taunt the feline natures;
to haunt the broken earth.

In stricken, furred impressions,
the animal was turned,
from soft and somnolescent;
to horrors full disturbed.

The image true collected,
in retinal address,
made synchronistic telling
of what had been repressed.
