Tilted – TB

27 Jun

Constantly painted

It would seem constipated

She’s playing with codes

That were not given to her.

Constantly tinted

It would seem tilted

Balancing the sea-saw


Unhinged, white clouds singed,

Painting her daily faces again and again.

    Yeah, I get this, having been feeling rather unhinged myself of late. Love the kinda rhymes here.

    Maybe having masks is a piece of survival.

      You have captured my feelings as of late – perhaps its because we are midsummer and all our usual routines are out of sync, or perhaps the see-saw is part of having a poets heart, and the daily painted faces are those we wear for others, or for our other “roles” — Thanks for sharing.

    Interesting word-play.

    Beautiful, wistful, C.F. I picture her being an ragamuffin girl, grown up now, living on Venice Beach (California, U.S, just north of Los Angeles). She paints. Herself to draw attention and beach scene pictures for tourists.
    I have known one like this, a family artist who painted on the beach and sidewalks of Galveston, Texas. We met another, a man, who made toothpick sculptures on Venice Beach. We bought two of his creations, they were very fragile. We still have a Gulf Coast Texas Beach painting from our cousin. And another of an old fashion sailing ship near the harbor.
