RAINY DAY
(7/12/10)


she asked
my favorite
color

gray
I told her

she said
that was not
a color

a mixture
of black
and white

black
the absence
of color

white
the presence
of all
colors

I told her
that she was being
too scientific

had she never
had an art
class?

had she ever
tried to create
white
by mixing
all the paints
together?

gray
I told her
was the
result

that's
what I
liked

give me
a bite
of all
of them
at the same
time

she made
a face

that's
rather disgusting
she said

then give me
a bite
of you
I replied

she made
a new
face
