Primary Color

Looking through the clear sheet of glass
cleaned without a single streak
out onto the mowed and manicured lawn,
I remember how Mrs. Gerber

and after all these years
of rushing through books and places and people -
this morning
I think I may have finally understood why.

those painted in an
off-white which is
really a light shade of
gray are usually found in
an asylum or
at least one
of those houses in which
demented people are cared
