we had dinner with some friends recently and 
i stepped into the kitchen to peek at the proceedings.
this painting was hanging on the wall by the stove.
i couldn't peel myself away from it.  
the cemetery in the background,
her stricken look, the sultry bared shoulder,
the possibly unintentional sexual aura
of it, mixed with an edge of feasible grief.
our host saw me staring and told me his grandfather
had painted and no one knows a thing about it.

muy sustantivo!
