“Details” by Dennis

Written by: Dennis

Little smiles small kisses

tiny feet mini hugs

Blessed? Outdrawn by BIG LOVE?

Raising impressionables 

blank canvases in process. 

I couldn’t bear witness from my small bleached world 

as if embarrassed by my colorblindness 

 

The costly season – all the pale illusions torn to pieces. 

Why is everything possible as it fades?

Last night I dreamed in backwards

of BIG LOVE – a reckoning with the impressionables

holding vivid tapestries in every shade of healing

Little smiles small kisses

I don’t mind these dreams so much

they give the former things in my head color

tiny feet mini hugs

I can’t draw an unbroken future without those details.
