I look and look
and look again
and still can't find

You give me a
beginner's paint set
and set me to coloring,
warning me to stay
in the lines or suffer
the consequences.

I slip and get a little
green in your eyes
and a little silver
in your hair.

I am inspired
and color me blue
and the night
dirty yellow.

You just laugh
and touch up
the stars
with turquoise.
