paintbrush

By Giovanni Mangiante

paintbrush

sometime in
my life
I slashed my future
beyond
restoration
and
threw the blood-stained
canvas
into the furnace
for nobody
to
get a hold
of my splatter-paint
thoughts.

sometime in
my life
I tore down
calendars
and got sick
of trying,
but remained
too afraid
of becoming
a father's lifelong
string of therapy
sessions.
