living on canvas

i feel like
a painting
sketched
painted up
in layers
the original
buried beneath
colour and
bubbles of paint

or a screenprint
multiplied
but all at once
the first application
inky and overwhelming
then a few good images
just for balance
before everything starts
to dissipate
and dissolve
until i am really
a shadow of my
once over-inked self
