If I tried to ignore
each event
and instead
reached for brush strokes
that over my head
too timid and lacking in precision
even to secure the most topical exposure
the kind that wears off and peels
like oranges
or avocados
I don’t know.

For all I know
the painted images of my life
are water colors
composed in hurricane
and as my brain tries to remember
each event, each time bound hair
bound hair
and felt the dabbled
mingling colors
(all you others)
on a palate
I would actually ignore the small details
And look at the bigger picture.
