A Painted Carousel

A merry-go-round
stops at the call of a whistle—
thoughts unravel
like when I crack open a fortune cookie
hoping to read: you'll find the way out!
Instead, a blank canvas keeps me
within limiting strokes: hues of reds,
whites and periwinkle blues
hide my sentiments like white balloons
floating on an overexposed sky.
That's how the picture unfolds as I ride
the wooden steed hoping to disappear
before the whistle reminds
I've merry-ed far too long in the thought
that the Artist will come to my rescue
and erase me.
