Sometimes I paint, untranslatable words

Tretar (Swedish) tar means coffee, palar means refill, therefore a second refill is a tretar, or a threefill.

 

Sometimes it isn’t about words at all

 

It doesn’t matter where we begin

just that we become

the pale yellow of this sky,

rock and burnt umber.

That we are shaped by a thin line

of indigo, filled in like dusk

overflowing, a river after rain,

with all the beauty

we contain.
