Nothing is impossible, it is either probable or improbable.


The canvas awaits to be doused
To be stained in collective pieces
Of what it will be, what it will mean later.
(Awaiting its fate).

A canvas has a face, but it’s two-dimensional.
So the face is all it’s got…
(I’ve never seen a poem with ellipses…)

What can a canvas do?
A blank stare is all it has to offer in the
Face of our demands.
(Canvases fulfill their duties at face value).

So the artist paints a picture,
On the pure, bland whiteness
(And makes it beautiful).
