[Poem a Day] “Slip From The Page”

Check out today’s post on Instagram.

This morning, for whatever reason, I found myself thinking of the way that paintbrushes look when you stick them into clear glasses of water.

You don’t swirl or agitate them at all, you just kind of dip them a little bit and watch the color come off in these ethereal, wispy trails that just twist and coil and turn over and over until eventually the color fades and just takes hold of the space.

I’m not sure if newspaper does the same thing in puddles, actually, but that’s the kind of visual I was going for with those first few lines. I like to imaging the words stay intact for a little while – letters rotating in space before just bleeding into unintelligible ink.
