The wallpaper today is stained yellow
but smells good
my razor cuts a square piece off
cardinals sing, blackbirds mate
three ducks in flight hang on one wall
colours faded, looking jaded
Their ego stripped naked and paraded
someone lights a cigarette
smoke rings pale truth
merging to the staining

as it begins to rain

The wallpaper today is stained yellow but smells good my razor cuts a square piece off cardinals sing, blackbirds mate three ducks in flight hang on one wall colours faded, looking jaded Their ego stripped naked and paraded someone lights a cigarette smoke rings pale truth merging to the staining as it begins to rain the razor now rests on the table nearby the yellow square ceiling drips scarlet tears yellow fades to amber a surge of emotion brings the wallpaper down and the grey clouds hover Will this do? love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
