"Rothko Chapel" by Morton Feldman
Machinima: Pia Klaar 2012
Today I am just picking up dust.
O, to do even a bit of good! But
Everything I try turns to rust -
And a pit remains in my gut.
If only I could be of higher cheer!
Instead, I pretend I'm fine,
I try to make happy all far and near -
And no one can tell when I lie.
Now I understand why the clown goes
With painted face and smile all nice,
Even though he's sad, from his neck to toes -
And inside he cries - just the outside is ice.
