Down by the dirty
sunny window with a Pantone
Solid Coated

book in my lap, tearing out
the one I love
best today, all color so true
dove gray
violet few
and varied, unh, variable

—I couldn’t have imagined it if I hadn’t
seen it right here in this book

—one after the other

giving me a hard-on. Can you
send me digital pictures of the paintings you have made

since we were parted color-match
the screen and make

a diagram for seeing
atlantis my head
treasure map to make
me work

so hard.
