Painting


Unperturbed by mismatched colors,
when I’m done this place above the stove
will be perfect for some kind
of colorful, crazy
clock.

And so goes
the story of my life —

I hide one thing, only to reveal another.

Thank you, Sara, and welcome. If I had known about your website, I could have painted a crazy clock on the wall myself.
