How flatness bores these voracious eyes
that search for brilliance and find none.
View the parlor of taupe and fawn, sterilized,
rented walls as bland as breadcrumbs.
I starve for rioting shades, hues brothel
bright. Shabby finery- gypsy tapestries-
where gold enfolds wine or emerald spills
in those preening patterns of Chinoiserie.
My life is prissy beige, far too repressed,
so each night mosaics arouse my dreams,
frills ruffle corners, toile redresses
rooms; midnight blues decorate for me.
Outed, this romantic snubbing chic style...
a Bohemian dulled in her own domicile.
