Fresh Paint

The walls have
Never been this white

Except maybe when
You lived here

Years ago, as a
Child now fully grown

Into adulthood, and
Today I thought about

Shaving, starting fresh
Repenting, as if such

A thing were that easy
The question securing

Reprieve and, in
Any case, recidivism

Can always be painted
Over white
