The shock has faded from the applegreen of children’s water-spray guns
From the hot-pink of ice-cream cones now pale like the palm of their hands
The children’s eyes have lost their palimpsest whiteness
The blacks acquired the brown of the streets where they ran
Are colours the foundation of a developing, failing world?
As Raden Saleh’s pigmies are to the revolution of his repulsion for the Dutch?
Are they ignored signatures at the back of a canvas?
Why have they neglected to put the names in full?
Are they not missing the pieces in this puzzle, as a rule?
I find this city sad
But no sadder than those faded American Splendors on DVD stands
One thought on “Puri Beta Town Square Junction Central Business District E-Xtainment Centre”
i have American Splendors DVD, bought it 2 years ago 🙂
