crying in color

Crayons are scattered about on the coffee table
One coloring sheet lies upside down on the floor
The evidence of angry scribbles rising above and through the otherwise white surface 
Another sheet lies face up 
Slight crumpling visible in the lower left corner
The fairies float above the yellow and blue flowers in a hazy gray sky
Purple wings
A pink hue reaching out from the bottom of the frock
But not yet transcendent 
Like me
Standing there
Reluctant to follow the noises into the next room
If life is 
Ever again
Quite so colorful
