De-picture

by Kade Hill

The painting on the wall depicts a pretty scene.

Below it is painted a realistic picture.

Fifteen past,

the white coat enters

to tell her misery

while the chemical stench of clean

is fit to smother.

She stands to absorb the news.

Seventeen past,

he leaves and she staggers back.

The picture comes down

with a white wall splitting crash.
