Don't go there

There's something about
our woundedness --
the way those old hurts have
of gushing forth
when we take time to look --
that's just so...
unappealing?  earthy?
kind of ... you know,
"too much information,
don't need to see that right now."
And yet, there's so much there
to work with,
so much possibility to explore.
Still --
I just really didn't want to go there...
not today, anyway.

Such a painterly effect this image has.

I am always taken by how closely your words complement your images.
