About this painting (Artist Poem)

Gross net
Sweat beads on my forehead
Amidst conditioned air
And fabricated smiles
Single file denotes out unison
I progress yet I digress
As I approach my prescribed destination
Being next brings no anxiety
My predecessor twitches
And salivates in anticipation
He proceeds to his god
And frolic in his blessings
Yet he leaves even more incomplete
Than upon his arrival
“Next” she utters, and I step forward
I grant her my document of slavery
“How would you like it?” , she enquires
I reply with ill fate… “twelve hundreds and eight twenties”
