In Quiet

the peasant

moon-like countenance.

the queen

In the background,

day plays away at everything

the painter

I see a grey-hue rainbow, moss

brushing soft roots into the rough

surface of world.

Portrait

Portrait

The beast bent on my destruction grows hairs from its pores, shaggy, malkempt. Sharp blades cut them but they cut back.
