The Limits of Artistry

Jet trails scratch pink clouds

brushed across pale blue canvas,

slashed with palette knife,

the artist in frustration,

unable to paint the sky.

Tendrils stretch spaceward
out of molten yellow suns
encased in coral
cups from which the insect gods
taste, satiate themselves, fly.
