Let’s Make a Painting

This week’s “Small Talk” is another beautiful poem from Melanin Speaking writer Jessica Sullivan, showing the importance of creativity and ingenuity.

let’s make a painting.

we’ll need all the colors for this one,

burgundy, sapphire, teal, gold, brown.

pick up your brush don’t you see

this space is waiting for us?

we’ll unleash a wheelhouse

watch our colors collide

what we’ll create will be

breathtaking. The colors

of the earth intertwining,

dazzling the room. we were always

there in all this

beauty. we’ll give

each other permission to take

up the space, it’s right

there, ours for the taking.

Let’s see what we can create.
