The man


There was a man waiting by his desk

He was seated on an old chair

He spoke no word to me nor I to him

His eyes were still and cold like iron

He was there looking at me

He had the same jacket as I did

Later I found he had the same name too

I hesitated for a while but then I knew…

There was a man waiting by his desk

I can tell he was writing before I got there

And now he remains there, like a statue

Every line, every hair was perfectly immaculate

I saw this man and I knew he was dead

He was waiting by his desk

Waiting for death maybe

Or waiting for me instead

I felt like I had his frozen heart

With sharper glass tearing me inside

He was waiting for death to arrive

Or he was waiting for me instead

It would have been the same anyway…

      I’m glad it made you smile, now is all worth it!
      Unfortunately no one famous own it! It was part of a big factory that now is the museum’s current location! The story of that building is awesome!
      If you liked Frida and Diego you should take a look at José Clemente Orozco, his work is really impressive and is one of the greatest visual artists amongst Diego and David Alfaro Siqueiros!
