Walls

Hard.Tough.Solid....drywall
Overhead domes climb up 7ft tall and over,
Walls have seen it all...
 
Blanketed in innocent pastels
A candy striper on my roller,
Painted plaque with rainbow liquor
 
Eggshell.Irish Cream.Cerulean.Sable...
Brights for the dark to hide,
Blind the truth of this plaster's fable
Dark to bury coffins of jocular pastimes...
 
A wet rouge
To lie away the scars of Time's abuse,
Lumps,dents,punctures & stains
Graffiti mildew of floods & hurricanes
 
Sightless witness to violence
Hostage maestro cuffed to the bass of instruments,
Buckets from the guillotine ;
Passed down through centuries to baptize crime scenes...
 
Chocolate.Peach.Vanilla.Cinnamon...
Cocooned in a Rubik cradle
Lies hues of virgin damnation,
Snuggled & soothed suckling Mother's nipple...

Ugly.Flaky.Waxy wallpaper
A fake strapless mask,
Concealing the history that walls have.
