Acrylic Waves

his mother stopped dusting

the garage sale painting

that hung over his bed

after he threw a righteous fit

he knew she didn’t get

his obsession with that

particular image of the sea

and he didn’t care

as long as it wasn’t disturbed

before he climbed through the frame

and drown himself

in the acrylic waves
