harold and his purple crayon

lineage

1.
a stain on whiteness
a negative space penetrated

stay
you’re beautiful

2.
where does the urge come from,
the aspiration?

a remnant in the animal ethos?
a preservation of self?

same as the mayans
same as campground instructions
same as banksy
same as harold and his purple crayon,

temporary blossoms or
a here-to-there of spirit?

3.
at root a
pixel, a particle, a pepper flake,
a passage through,
a passion
