untitled II

I knew a boy who liked to paint,

each piece a tessselation,

a labyrinth

of color and jagged edges.

Some so loud

I cowered, hands over ears,

others hushed

like petals on a flower


I think he was trying to say

something about the nuances

of beauty

but he got on a boat one day

and sailed

far, far away;

his paintings a blazing heap

on the beach.


(maybe they meant nothing at all.)



That's pretty cool!!
