PAD 26 regret


Making mistakes in paintings
is what artists call happy accidents.
That blob of blue can turn into a bird.
That smear of yellow can blend
into the grasses like sunlight.
Regrets are like those blobs.
Sometimes the regrets get too much
for the mind’s canvas
and you must get a tube of gesso
and begin again.
