Vincent van Gogh, 'The Potato Eaters', 1885, Oil on canvas

'I have tried to emphasize that those people, eating their potatoes in the lamp-light have dug the earth with those very hands they put in the dish, and so it speaks of manual labor, and how they have honestly earned their food' - Vincent van Gogh, 1885
forcing - a ditty
tie it down,
on letting free
Flees back, status quo

straighten the bend,
on less restrain
Bends back, original strain

stick it up,
on drying glue
Easily free, unrestrained

‘tis a funny thing,
this love
You can’t hurry it.
