Keep Art Alive :: Art by Bente Schlick
“This is fact not fiction,
For the first time in years.”
She paints in pink highlights,
with ocean blue streaks,
dyed eyes in purple powdered bruises,
daylight shading over everything she dances within.
Her soul kissed wishes,
she will take them all along,
pulled out and rolled up together in a borrowed messenger bag,
as she hitchhikes her way to his trailer park belong.
She will leave magic behind her,
all her creatures and comforts back in a dime store bedroom,
she will bring all the colors along for the ride.
