Art Lecture Room

The old lecturer paused in mid flow,
 1
hoping no one had noticed
 2
The disinterested eye of a student focused.
 3
The one who sought cynical reasons
 4
regarding Picasso’s sizzling sex life,
 5
and why Lautrec always wore gloves.
 6
“Please don’t ask.” He inwardly pleads.
 7
“In fact, get stuffed.”
 8
 
 
Like oil paint gone wrong,
 9
he wished to be scraped off his tedious day,
 10
wanting coffee, buns, love, a kids cartoon.
 11
“Scooby Dooby Do, where are you?”
 12
Now we know why he carries on.

The internal monologue is brilliant. Not quite sure about the wording of the last line but the message is clear nevertheless. Love it.

This is good. I like the simile and the sounds in the first stanza - keeps the tongue dancing - very balanced.
