The Face This World Will See


Recreate

Setting out
pots and brushes
I get to work on
a blank canvas
Spreading colour
I paint and smudge
dab and shade
wipe clean and redo

I look at it in the light
then in shadow
From this angle and that
I scrutinise my creation
It has to reflect me
yet be different

Every day I recreate
my masterpiece
step out the door
wearing the face
this world will see
