Poetry of hospitals and waiting rooms…

And for the walls

 
They’ve only been given a bit of the palette
so it’s all pale green and underwater blue
and a tone between the two called pacify.

I’d have used hot terracotta
a blue as deep as southern oceans
the sharpness of lemon skins.

Maybe Cadmium, Bismuth,  Azo.
Hansa Yellow  Light.
Yellower than the sun.

Or maybe I’d just paint them red and
black.
