Rookie (Novemeber 28th 1990 / summerside PEI)


Populated with diversity
and untamed eyes
The wind whispers with tenacious hellos and breathless goodbyes
Far stretched like the minds of its dweller
It shapes and moulds,
Breaks and re-makes
And with unforgivable ease it takes from the bottomless pockets
In which its occupants carry so eagerly with them
its the only place free from conformity
yet only few reign supreme
And others are swallowed by the shadows
Although all wear masks, not one be the same
Though similar predominantly each one has a name
Some may be whole masks and some may be broken masks
But every mask is seen different subject to where it is on the hierarchy scale
In this ever-changing painting where opposing colors clash,
equal colors frolic and dance and the neglected colors diverge from others
But together do they all walk in existence as individuals
