Different Strokes (Poem)

Different Strokes

Paint peels away
Like dried roses
Stripping down
Bare to the bone
Crumbs leftover
On the grounds
Dirty fingernails
Hold evidence
Claws scratched
Digging deeper
Searching farther
Planning a break
From the prison
On an island
Out in the middle
Of everywhere
Empty pockets
Courageous hearts
Look at canvas
As a blank slate
And take hold
Once again
After so long
The paintbrush
And stroke
