ARTIST ON THE ROOF

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

The Tomato-coloured Couch 6:45pm

I’ve come out

of Hyde-ing

in My Rose-Coloured Top

arms above My Head

holding up My Model Canvas

behind Me

like a stretched-out butterfly

“Artist On The Roof”

in lit-up red

with My Name

on The Plaza

of the Galactic

Pool
