Conversation in Plein Air
by Bruce McMillan

"Hmm, where is he?"
"Not over here."
"Hey, he's not here."
"How about there?"
"Nope, not down here."
"I see him, hey,
looking at me,
all set up, see?"
"He just paints, gee."
"He's painting me?"
"No, painting us."
"Doesn't say much."
"We should stand still."
"And stop talking."

Yellow heads looking here and there supported with ladders of green hearts.
