Dried Paint

Dmitri Akers

Mummified like the Pharaohs of yester,
Old black, red, yellow, brown, bright green, old blue…
Left in some painter’s palette to fester,
What could these hues mean for a select few?
This leaves a trace of what was, though no clue;
Lasted more than Ozymandias, who
Left only some decayed, timeworn statue:
O Painter (third of his name), we assume
Your signature is here, mere gravestone we exhume.
