Amongst life’s clutter
and noise
I long for peace
For days to do nothing
but stare at a flour-dusted sky
For times when my senses
are not assaulted
by ignorant opinions
and human ugliness

I would recoil and slip into 
a monochrome world 
Matte and lusterless
Black and white
Honest in its presentation 
All shades of grey invisible
and not clouding thoughts
What you see is what you get
and chaos lives elsewhere
