“Imaginary Art” By Maya Gerritis

By Maya Gerritis ’25

Imaginary Art

I am pink and blue, and purple

I create a painting of a sort.

A broken, beautiful masterpiece.

A dark pink watercolor on my cheeks,

A deep brown on my lashes,

And a swirling blue in my eyes.

He was purple and green, and black.

He added to my masterpiece, making it look more like a trainwreck than an art piece.

He added a black and blue swirl by my eyes,

A deep red on my knuckles,

And a screaming pink on my neck.

My painting was made in my own head because I wasn’t brave enough to display my colors.

Oh, the artists we have become.
