you stand back and admire
a picture, complete
but, interested, you step closer to really see
and it's just one big mess
the portrait of life you found so captivating
nothing more than dabs of paint
use of color
shades and manufactured colors
spots flung on quickly
quickly with care
made purposefully to be blurry
for when you see the picture
you're looking hard
but you can never quite grasp the whole
the meaning behind it
and it makes you wonder-
close up or far away-
which way were you supposed to see it?
do you get it?
do you see?
dabs of paint, to form
but it's so much more than that.
