Rainbow

I had a rainbow in my head

It was yellow and purple and blue and red

The colors flew like flies

They buzzed and crackled out my eyes

I painted a picture as the colors streamed out

It was a portrait of a concept that I was thinking about

Suddenly the portrait became animated like a video clip

I sat down on my couch, I thought I was losing my grip

Then the portrait spoke in a dull and scratchy voice

It shimmered and moaned “I have no choice!”

I tried to comfort the portrait by saying “a priori

But the portrait exploded and splattered all over me
