sometimes it’s to look at a painted tree
without looking away
unblinking reveals what goes blind
yes, maybe I’ll change my face
today, be someplace else instead
another life, a different street.
all those memories will be
painted over. forgiven,
water lapping against the hull,
left to drift free of lovings
not even Autumn would disagree.

What a great face you found. And it’s true, we are always painting over our memories. (K)
Thank you Kerfe. Yea, I love your face paintings, but this one… it is just more precise a fit.
