Captured blue waves

veil a white

 

Her boat shoes pause while designer

sunglasses move into tiara position

 

She breathes in

the confidence of vibrant

the movement of lines

the peace of conception

 

reads the notation:

"Watercolor on Paper"

 

No hint of

buckets of caffeine,

day-old bagels,

discount paper towels

thrift-store t-shirts

roach spray

self-imposed deadlines

24 hours of self-doubt

and a well of passion.

 

Her monogrammed handbag

drops to the gallery desk

where she trades green for blue

 

She positions a nail above her sofa

lifts color onto a sea of white

wades in its calm over steaming coffee

and whispers to friends,

“It’s original, you know—oil on canvas.”
