The Orange Song (inspired by a painting by Picasso)

I am now driven to write a story, program a game and produce a song inspired by a 1921 painting by Picasso. The first collection of words follows below. The phrases been inspired by the painting itself, the works of Gertrude Stein, and Surrealism, one of several art movements Picasso was involved with. A sure start, but experimentation, additions, reduction and refinement  are on the horizon. I am most concerned that the phrases are interesting, but possibly lacking a sense of character; emotion. Another issue is the present lack of rhythm. Other posts about this project will follow.The second post is here.   Minotaur, minotaur on the wall… Who’s the fairest of them all?   Blood sweat and tears; Hidden but real. I am Olga, aiding an army transfer.   Curve an arm Cube a body His perspectives loud radios Mine are mine   Our moment is dead, our moment lives on.   Bull cracking rose Regret dragging grace Shaming pride Our  bottle gains life a guitar takes off its clothes   One dances a duet Calculus, surrender and furs. infant ever after   Elegant excitement burnt a weary-making fury weight of smoke, after him in public.   Our moment lives on, our moment is dead.   His oil and cardboard heart exuberant red hole ghost, Music shapes a piece of pain, a rose on fire, the horns of the rain.
