the wall

tea                           cup
suspended    in    space
bone                       blue
china                     green

black  silence

how your zigzag red-eyed words
quickly fill a page
puff up in smoke

grab onto the wall
hang on
or climb over it

  4. Love the “bridge” in addition to the wall. The colors. Nice shape on the page. I’m going to do all three, grab hold, hang on, and climb over. :o)
