artist enough

if I were
to brush
to oil

what would I
to word

is it come one
come all
or is there room for …

no

no

I will not
with brush
and I will not
with oil

I am already
with pen
how much can I need
can I use
can I want
can I be

I speak
I say the word

write the thought

look into
my own mind
look
right into yours

what need to paint my reply
when I can speak
the word

I am
I am
my words
