We Were Wallpapers

we were not the flavors 

of a beautiful painting,


but rather, the starched sheet

of an endless wallpaper

stranded in a cyclical design

that we drew ourselves,


unable to cling to the walls for a lifetime.


◄ That Which Holds All

Wow, what a great vignette poem. The imagery, the attribution, the conclusion all draw me in and show me something, rather than telling it to me. I love it!
