The Invention of Days

Was it His intention
to push clouds around,
{zebras, elephants,
great ivory ships}
slip light on through
those cotton candy puffs,
give us just enough
voice
choice
power
to hang ourselves
on hope?

This I know:
there’s an Artist
and a canvas
and a plan
to help me dance,
and also
a
nasty chance
I’m gonna spill the paint.

    This just became my favorite, most touching De poem.

    there isn’t anything more sensuous, creative or wonderful than that. 🙂
