Impermanence - Poem by Pearl Colette

Your paintbrush dancing across the canvas

Recreating dark shadows and blurred anger

You resurrect the raw fury that the riots gave birth to

A hooded man posed in mid-run the shimmer of a knife visible in his grasp

All appears frozen and still, a moment of silence surrounded by chaos

his translucent quality reflects the impermanence of his situation You say

Out of the blue rousing from the remnants several more figures approach

Robed in indistinct uniforms, masked and armed

The city takes a breath.
