"Black Flower" | Watercolor, Gouache and Ink | 2018

I colored my sheep rainbow

Then I colored my monkey yellow

Its head in red and purple

My teacher shook in sorrow

I colored my rose black

My teacher phoned my mother

My mother asked me back

Why color your flower black?

Just so-so, I smiled back

Then I painted her kitchen with lac.
