    The Colours

    Magenta, yellow and a smidgen
    of blue
    Blobbed out or squirted
    you slip 'n roll onto your back
    and stare at the swirling
    corners of the sky
    while I sparkle,
    flashing and smeared
    with our completeness.

    Orange, grey and a splash
    of green
    Sprayed or brushed
    you soak the oily rag
    and drink in the fluids
    as they merge on the canvas
    while I spasm a
    phantasmagoria
    of my senses.

    You squeeze out weak white drops
    and finish me off
    with a palette knife.

    Great unhappy ending

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.

    Great job, Delta, really enjoyed your poem.
