Coloring Books

Vintage Words


First, this is how to shape an imagination,

prodding it with small tubes of color,

dark lines defining realities yet to be known

or possibilities yet to be dreamed.


There are adult coloring books now. For

those who remember the joy of selecting

their favorite pallet, expressing chaotic

or panoramic or sculturesque creations

inside or outside the lines.


I want to color human activities

undefined by the way things occur. 

The act of making as if seeing

the world not as it is from the window. 

The filtering process must be one of

never seen before realities as when

done, crayola in hand, with the simple

ecstasy of fun.
