“Picture at an Exhibition”

Orange and yellow, green, blue and red—
colors pile on complements and
detractors alike, an exhibit not of refined
tastes, but rather riots of color.
To observe it is to listen to the frenetic
music of the Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks.

A “large, public art exhibition” is, after all, an exposition, too. I was listening to “Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks”, last night, which always give me the giggles. I couldn’t get Pictures at an Exhibition out of my head, today, when writing my poem for Poetry Rehab, and so I went with it.
