a soft tangerine expanse touched with clouds of pastel maize & peach
bookended by lackadaisical lavender afterthoughts
whose impish delicacy and ease of application
belies their important as demarcations
of alpha and omega, conception & completion.
this expanse- even in its completeness unto itself- is enveloped,
in a border of raw, gentle taupe
whose humility is also its charisma,
affording it equal import as the vast color field,
whose quiet zing beckons
for it to be at the center of one’s consciousness.
under hot fluorescents, ochre quivers
with its own internal electricity
hovering, without melting,
over an expanse of deep tangerine.
like a gazelle, hot lemon
sizzles in a line
over a violet mass whose amorphous fluidity
bulges in whorls
sinking and rising as a storm contained
by the terra electra, the desert sand
upon which hot color pools-
wild, but constrained
