Yves Klein Was Here

© Matthew Word Bain

peeling back the blue wall
between the yellow door
and the light grey barrier
a stack of red bricks is revealed
the white sign, offset above the yellow door
offers little by way of explanation
save more ambiguity
by way of obscure impressions
of letters now long gone

between the bold colors, the bright sun
and the emerging layers of texture
there is something surreal
about this scene
