“Paint” by Mitchell Browder

I picked up a brush 
and 80 bucks worth of paint.
After a few tries, I know
that kind of artist I ain't.

So I will paint a picture
in your head
with the words 
that I write instead.

I'll start with the sky...
use your imagination
blue, blue like 
the first day of summer vacation.

Next is the grass,
tall and green.
The breeze makes it wave
and the sun makes it sheen.

Just beyond the grass 
are the sand dunes
and just above that
a seagull looms.

The air is sweet 
with the scent of the ocean
and the coconut 
in my suntan lotion.

The sun is warm
and bright.
I have to squint to see
that little boy's kite.

I crest the dune,
and there is the sea.
The waves crash and foam
and softly roar at me.

I wade in; it is quite cold.
Now let's sign this in the sand
where the waves hit the shore
and sea meets the air and the land.

Now step back and look. 
What a wonderful view!
And the canvas can go wherever
because it is in you.

Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .
