The Art of Madness

I know exactly
what I want to do.
I want
to finger paint on you.

I want to try out
every startling,

brilliant hue.

Perhaps I will start with
a piercing jolt of yellow
that would splay your neurons
into shock—
I could rewire you to be

comes the flash of red
that would kick your head
into a mess—
oh just you wait
for the frantic frenzy
I can project!

And then, there is blue—
manic splash to match
your coursing, pulsing veins—



Can I retain
the flash flood of color
these ardent hands contain?

Or do my hands cover
and contaminate—


This is what I do.
Who are you this time, Mister,


I’ve got

to get
my hands
on you.

  i feel a jackson pollock emotion in this....

painting with splashes...and you take the metaphor all the way through the poem in such "colorful" fashion to describe your passion...

and this makes me are there no comments on such a piece?

i'm so really can turn a phrase and your words really show!
