I was so devoted

That no new coat of paint

Could escape my notice.

It was clear where Van Gogh

Had gone on vacation to

Some sort of exhibition,

Or that my preferred Turner

Looked likely out of town.

 

I found the latter later,

Waiting on the train,

The Venetian port

On a poster for the Frick.

I felt better that it

Was just uptown a bit.
