Semi-Hi Gloss

Image borrowed from Bing

Semi-Hi Gloss

when my head
takes a walk on
my heart
and the right words
cease to roll
off my tongue
i put down the pen
pick out some paint
and a brush
and listen
as the four walls talk

Of Vienna Sunsets
Montana Skies
The Golden Prairie Harvest
of 1975
Parisian Rain
Barcelona Nights
and that
Deepest, Truest Yellow
looks awfully green
in Evening Light
Firetruck Red
takes a coat
or three of prime
or Banana Whisper
will Scream Orange
every time
walls speak with
Dutch Boy accents
in colorful metaphors
they'll Meet You At The Corner
and they'll hug you by the door
take you to Mystic Mountain
bring you Seashells By The Shore
is this all a Daydream
or am i as high as
Kansas Corn
