Her dark ground

Adelie kept a book of them;

recipes for black. Thirty or more,

each with its mood and purpose.

She covered each canvas with one

before obliterating it with swirling colour.

Her hidden darknesses, her sweetest secret.

  1. They nearly all seem like new terrain when I write them, but, that said, there’s a more knowing psychological edge in this. I think there’s more to explore in the way creative people tend to seek out, and attempt to stare down, their demons. It can be a dangerous game.
