Could've Been

These abstract brush strokes could have been
fish, or needles, or dried grass stems.
Could've been
that the movie runs backwards:
hurricanes build homes and lush landscapes -
earthquakes restore tall buildings and old cities -
floods repair roads, remove debris, stabilize hillsides -
and fired guns remove bullets and bring people back to life.

This is another blank watercolor greeting card
from an ongoing series of abstracts.
Signed and dated on the back,
the prose above are handwritten
on a separate page of vellum,
(convenient for burning if you find the words irritating)
Envelope included.
