metal pocket watch, acrylic painting

This painting portrays an Iago and betrayer I knew long ago, set within a Shakespearean context.  I’ve written a poem about this work, titled “Farrago.”  “Fairyland had unnerved— / Memories were well-served. // Once in time, I had bent / To his nihilist blows— / This wretched malcontent / And his sad farragoes. // His smiles drank others’ tears— / Bottom, with donkey ears.”
