portrait

when i look out my bedroom window, i see the dullest of green mountains framed by the shadiest grey of blue sky and lake. it’s a pathetic portrait to paint, of what i know to be

beautiful,
so i look closer

and i see the red brick, and
the tv tower, and
the tomato garden, and
the satellite dish, and
the hanging smog, and
the dying palm, and
i realise

that i was right in the first place, it’s a pathetic portrait to paint. i should find something new, to live and be a-live.
