My Body is a CanvasI am the painter of my own design,My Body is a Canvas6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
No one will affect it, not even red wine.
I will paint my skies,
brown or yellow, withholding troubled sighs.
My tender canvas,
is of but my own shape, not for your madness or sadness.
Oh, but my dear misfortunate children and peers,
Listen well and fear not, I understand the sneers and tears.
Please stop drawing red lines,
and depriving the frame of all it could be; you are goddamn fine, be kind.
Whether your canvas is narrow or not, do not be put to shame,
All art is beautiful, one and the same.
