I call it Art

There is something terrifying
about pale, disinfected walls.
So, I spend my free time
colouring it black and red,
rubbing the wax off the crayons
to fill out the void in the wall,
to perhaps, transfer some of my chaos
into it.

There is something choking
about silence.
So, I spend my walking hours
creating noise.

I like to call it art.
The click-click
of my heels,
the one’s that
turn my feet blue and red
the very night.
The thump. thump.
the wavering of my breath,
the tremble of my hand,
and the noises inside my head.

I was route taught,
it’s better to feel pain
than nothing
so now I take my dad’s razor
and shred the blank canvas into pieces.
and call it Art.
