The Scream

Two masked men
storm into
the Art Museum

and steal
"The Scream"
at gunpoint.

The getaway driver
is waiting
outside in a fjord

and they
speed off
on the Norwegian streets.

the painting
never stops screaming.

You’d think
would hear

and call the cops
but only bystanders
hang around.

We hear
Iraq scream
and only the French protest

that the United States has
cloned Edvard Munch
to paint a new masterpiece.
