the watercolor

the watercolor
that is life
as we remember
it runs,
gets lost
edges, pushes
pigments out
of place, so
that we will
never get the

paper to sponge,
dry on wet,
wet on wet

you have let
the tulips
dry
so perfectly –
like wild grass
with their phosphorus
tulip heads a heavy
crimson, over muted
bodies, a lighter shade
of neglect –
resembling twisted
matchsticks
rearranging themselves
in your innocent
beer stein
