On the day Trump pulls out
After late night covfefe
Such a French sounding word
On the first of June!
And all I want to do is paint with
Across my canvas which is my phone
Sitting in the doctors office
Waiting to be carved out of stone
Stitches and a band aid
Not enough to cover up the anxieties of late nights keeping me awake
And all i want to do is paint with
An afternoon with F.O.H.
His orange and blue so perfect pocket sized for
Pick pocketing poems
Taking trips trip taking tripping
From the futon in my study:
Biarritz, Madrid and Barcelona
Thank you Frank!
Skipping A last lunch like THE last supper
Eating words instead.
