Bored and Writing II

Another thing I wrote then put on the blog:

In service of something else I
Throw myself headlong
Into the gray.
Analysis stands too close,
One must step back,
See the full expanse
all the way to the frame.
Far enough to notice
There are frames lining every wall
in the building;
and there are buildings
as far as the eye can see.

In service of myself
I write.
Hoping thoughts will one day
Teach me how to paint.
Pens and brushes bunched in
A mug on the desk, behind
The computer where
I sit and type
Lines on how I would
Like to do
