Rembrandt and Marin Sorescu - Poem and Painting Pairing

Rembrandt - Bathing Woman

An excerpt from Marin Sorescu's poem titled, "Paintings."  Please read the full poem here.

All the museums are afraid of me,
Because each time I spend a whole day
In front of a painting
The next day they announce
The painting’s disappeared.

Every night I’m caught stealing
In another part of the world,
But I don’t even care
About the bullets hissing toward my ear,
And the police dogs who are onto
The smell of my tracks,
Better than lovers who know
The perfume of their mistress.
