>Black Hexadecimals #18-NaPoWriMo – A Portrait Poem


If I were to paint your portrait
beginning with a 9B Derwert
sure to contour asymmetric lines
so they lift up off the canvas
showing how delineation
sometimes exists in perspective 
I’d apply my brushstrokes
vigorously, making broken combinations
similar to ones inside your ambiguity  

No child’s watercolour could be utilized,
much too innocent for this painting,
to reveal the murkiness
residing within your structure; 
pastels are too light and airy for portrayal

alkyds work well when attempting to
convey darkness held inward
withstanding years in passing

Subsequently setting you out
in lightning with teeming rain …
watching you warp in its frame
