An American Abstract
Spring is about quiet and reawakening.
Segregated fields of mustard colored poppies bow
and bow. Most—blurred images.
Pretty pink each stem. Tall and short.
A cream color sky holds hostage the day. No clouds
Anchoring the backdrop are jagged edged mountains.
Jim Crow laws will never rue the day.
Brisk winds the injustice. Inferior border a pale white,
securing its place in the foreground.
If only this abstract could speak.
