THE HUMAN IMPULSE TO COLOR

– dyes, ornamentation
black-and-white is focused defiance.

let’s be honest – these are weedy gardens
even with the black plastic film protection
or the arbor with ferns now

I have a woman without freckles
she doesn’t preen
she’s all business
she’s sexy as all hell

there are no wild boars here

“let’s go bag a deer”
“and then what?”
“we’ll make candles”

* * *

parables?
you’ll never understand
without practice
