I write the awful things I see. I write the beautiful things I see. Sometimes, there's no difference between the two.


Government Assistance Grey Is the color Of power. You can see this: Office buildings are grey. Cubicles are grey. Money, two letters off. White is the color of peace, And hope, And the color of the linoleum Where they take pieces of you And put it on a card. Brown Is the faces Of most I see. It's interesting how color Affects so much. Black, Their smiles. The screen, The air. I think, Those are all of them, Colors. At least the ones, That matter here

Hello Josie,
I've not read anything here on WOL that matches the starkness of your work. I hesitate to say I like it because plainly what you describe, i'm guessing, is acute frustration born of mental pain, and there's little to like in such a situation. That said, you compose your pieces beautifully, and you can certainly write. I hope you get your $900.
