Painter's Time

If I could just get in there
ahead of the brush, and show
where the colors need to go,
I could tell the picture's story
explain how it was going.

It turns out to be something
I always knew; what red was,
how green scaffolding went up,
which inaugurating gestural
pushes with the brush to use.
