Sticky Words

I stare at the screen

My eyes crossing, contacts dry

As I try to paint

Using only words

Some words are sharp, some pointy

Others are vivid

Like a 1972 VW

Others are dull and sticky

Like hour old chewing gum

What’s true about words as art

Is there are thousands

And if they connect just right,

They create not just art, but action

And drama that invokes real emotion

Yet somehow writing is also…


Because the art is real

But invisible
