The Coat

Life

a groovy substance stretched over primer,

is color painted on a wall,

a thin spread- a coat.

mostly painted to cover older colors,

older coats- like old notes

work the same, but lose appeal

are weathered,

have been scratched on

have darkened in places

due to unwanted leaning by accidental owners

wall paint life

proudly displayed over old paint,

looks anew and fresh, but-

only for a while,

soon,

it too will need another coat.
