My day was dull, so I opened a packet of fresh images hoping to use them before they got stale.
I used the earthy smell of autumn
to evoke memories of chilly childhood days
with their blazing colour and warm coats.
I took the tickle of light warm rain
on my skin and sprayed it over my body
to remove that numb workday tedium.
I dressed a salad with some sweet daydreams
carefully avoiding the intense ones
because I was a bit thought dry.
I replayed the sound of your silky voice
singing me love songs to cover the traffic noises
and the sounds of the obnoxious drunks
walking home from the pubs,
and my thumping headache eased.
I pinched some colours from Gauguin paintings
and covered the bland white walls in them
and wore my happiness like a couture gown.
Feeling a bit full after my binge, but oddly satisfied,
I had a cup of tea and dozed off in a chair.
