You get your whites and blues,
And I’ll get my greys and greens
Let’s have a happy colour palette for once.
Maybe something out of this we’ll make,
Perhaps a pretty portrait of your face
When I make you laugh and you
Grin your widest grin
Laugh your best laugh
And smile that smile
I’ll take all your acrylic
And bind it to my canvas.
You’re the only white splatter in my ink-black sky.
