True Colors – Erin King

An Anthem Challenge poem from Erin King – painting love

Brave & Reckless

I dip the brush dreamily into red.
One line, from thigh to knee.
My canvas stretched before me,
You are pink and white –
Curved calves and breasts.
Violet swirls down to graze your toes
Ultramarine in your clavicle’s hollow,
Sweet umber around each wrist.
You suck in your bottom lip
Curl your fingers helplessly
Wondering where I will paint next.
