Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


my painting uses only black and red


black for the shadows
black for the high rise buildings
black for the horizon

chimneys and exhaust
pipes

red for the background
red for dried bloodstains
red for anger
red for a revolution

nothing for what is to be done.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost
