Frida Kahlo in the window
such power in a single gaze
hold tight, Frida
your eyes climbed the trees
if your body could not
I gather strength from those eyes.
Her last diary entry read: “I hope the end is joyful – and I hope never to return – Frida..”
When asked what she wanted done with her body, she said, “Burn it…I don’t want to be buried. I have spent too much time lying down… Just burn it!” (www.fridakahlo.com)
