POETRY

Latex White
by Jo Lee Dibert-Fitko

Pry open eagerly
the
lidded gallon
because
there is something about
white paint.
A massive vanilla
malt
that sucks up
through the straw
to
throat’s downhill
slide
and stick stirring
contents
like a huge vat
encourage me
to dive in for
a porcelain dressing
of slick,
shiny clean
drippings,
then sponge myself
against
your porous canvas
begging.
This stark bold
Contrast to everything
teases
primary’s colors to
bright displays
and
a two-coat milkiness
denies mockingly
you ever
existed.
Creamery richness.
Luscious diversion.
I’d like to
dip my toes in
your  tub
and stamp an all day
walking trail
of ivory
spontaneity
then savor the
pearly tipped bristles
and slink
away for
graffiti’s glowing
runaway
finale.
