Painting by numbers


Some red
awful red-hot red
more blue
terrible biting blue
so much green
screaming granite green

pre-fabricated canvas
pre-defined picture
previous excluded nuances
of any kind
preset contours
pre-printed numbers
no chances
for some free space

the grace
of a flexible mind
no chance
of any kind

I watched with respect
I noticed the best of intentions
yet every single aspect
I can't connect with

I sense deep inside
those colors aren't mine
it's fine with me
I feel free and decline
