    paint
    it wipes away the dirt
    the scratches
    the scrapes
    the pencil
    the crayons
    the stages in life

    paint
    can make things new
    as i dip my brush
    the paint, thick
    with the promise of something new
    something clean

    each stroke
    builds a future
    a new begining
    a clean slate
    paint
    semi-gloss wipes clean
    you must respect
    a man who works his trade
    in paint

    a drop cloth
    it's wrinkles, it's stains
    even a drop cloth
    can look clean
    it catches the drops
    that don't make it on the walls

    a drop falls on my cheek
    paint
    i close my eyes and smile
    this room
    like me
    is going to be beautiful
