Red Ragweed Eyes

I wish I could explain my thoughts with pictures.
Big black spirals when I'm frustrated and colorful splotches when I'm elated.
I wish you could just see what I see
The faces covered in beads of sweat, the sunsets, the bars full of wrinkled fishermen, the quaint main streets.
The fact that this town doesn't have a "town center". No grocery store. Only one traffic light. A meaningless population.
I don't speak well. I don't write well. I jumble my words and trip over long sentences.
I'm not articulate. My list of SAT-type vocabulary does not exist. Instead I use gestures, half-smiles, and photographs.
I wish I could explain this to you in pictures because it would be so much more fulfilling for you.

I like your thoughts.
They aren't quite as jumbled as you think.
As far as pictures, you're pretty good at painting them in someones head.

I believe that most think more in pictures and feelings, as opposed to their native tongue's words. What we say never feels like enough and even gifted artists insist that what they create is never as striking as what they first had in mind.
