One Small Nail
Author: Pondering Red


I found a Dufy on
Mount Royal avenue,
a very large painting
of a blue scene of a room with a view.
It traveled in the back of a taxi
and now hangs in my living room
against a deep red wall.

You hung it up yesterday.
Bravo -

I took it off the wall last night,
thinking it may fall
on my body or my head
while I slept.
You think this is ridiculous.

I think you don't hang
a very large painting
with one small nail

and also
I think that
you don't like me.
