perspective

which side of the leaf
would you paint on your canvas? someone asked

she said, i’ll paint their back, the ones roughly lined
and untouched by the sun – their skeleton –

he said, i’ll paint their smooth complexions,
gleaming a deep waxy green in the sunlight – their skin –

i said, i’ll paint their shadows that walk
and crouch on the roads – their ghosts within –
