off colour

 

I’m painting the house
the wrong colour

just a smidge
too yellow-based myurrrk
instead of the blue-based green
I wanted

the next coat will cover it
but I’ve got to use up this 15 liters

and each brush stroke is deeply
unsatisfying

I look back at the last few hours
of weatherboard wall
wearing the wrong colour
