Steven Epstein “Got a mind to give up” acrylic on canvas

“Got a Mind to Give Up” is more literal in its depiction of both the winter and the blues.
The colors, the snow and the setting are concrete.  There’s a blues standard that goes

I’ve got a good mind to give up living, and go shopping

Instead

I say, I’ve got a good mind to give up living, and go
Shopping instead
To pick up me a tombstone, and be pronounced dead
When I read your letter this morning, that was in your
Place in bed
I read your letter this morning, that was in your place
In bed
  And that’s when I decided, that I would be better off
Dead
It read, there is no use you looking, or ever hoping t
Get me back
Oh, there’s no use you looking, or ever hoping to get me
Back
Yes, because it’s all over now, and baby you can bet on
That
