Rough Cut of Re-Mediation Project
Painting 1: Factory Scene
So much anticipation
Not a single worry
Or pessimistic consequence
Crosses my mind
Painting 2: Shop
The Hardest Part
Is not seeing results
Painting 3: School
I feel the weight of your shoulders
Pressing against me to help
Show others your intelligence
Painting 4: Drawer
Please don’t look at me like that
Or pick me up.
I no longer flow
And once you figure it out,
You like all the rest will violently grab me
And press me against the white sheet
Harder and harder until I bleed
Oh, when will this misery of false hope end?
For now, let me lie in this box
Along with the forgotten, yellow ones.
