Sometimes, We Paint Over Things.

Sometimes,
Poems are paintings
Painted in warm tones on cold days
Layer over layer
Only to be painted
White again.

I am a poet
Who paints over things
Again
And
Again.

One thought on “Sometimes, We Paint Over Things.

  1. I have read this over and over again, and each time, I am reminded how it is the simple truths, the lines that are clear and yet weighted, that stay with me. ❤ This is the loveliest poem!
