THE STORY OF “THE SCREAM“ BY EDVARD MUNCH

Yesterday I had lunch
with the guy from The Scream
by Edvard Munch
where he stands on the bridge.
I asked him,
What happened to your ears?
He said it was the worst day
of the Corona virus in Norway.
His Mama was gravely ill
and he walked across the bridge to take care of her.
But on the bridge, right in the middle,
someone snatched his face mask away.
What you see now, he said,
how I frantically clutch
my hands to my ears
is because both my ears
had been cut off.

Translated by MW, May 2020
