Side by Side

Edgar Degas - In a Café - Google Art Project 2.jpg

L’Absinthe, Edgar Degas 

” Oh! We ain`t got a barrel of money
Maybe we`re ragged and funny
But we`ll travel along
Singing a song
Side by side”

Strangers in the night
sharing drinks and a table
nothing to talk about
don’t feel like singing
So this is what twenty years
of married life looks like
Drowning my sorrows
with la fée verte …
side by side.

(la fée verte – the green fairy)

  1. Great pairing of old song with painting and further reflection. That painting is just asking for it!
