Teaser:

Exotic

The tangible fog
created by Maya,
the architect of god’s mansion
the tangible fog
still
endless
stacked everywhere.

Children going to school
wonder
how to paint the fog?

They discuss in chorus
some in balconies
others in the garden
no need to yell
burst out yet others.

Unexpected joy
blue, black, green stripes
sea of faces
bursting for adventure…

At lunch
they all sit densely
hair drifted
palms technicolour
excited
they finally see
the solution for
the tangible fog
they paint
white on white.
