The Stain

Fractal painting on a wall.

The paint runs down, and seeps, to become a stain on the rug.

It stays there.

The soap no longer makes clean.

It just lies there . For it is a spilled mess, but in someway’s it possesses a quality that sets it apart.

The ground now has character, some thing that distinguishes it from any thing else.

And Makes it beautiful.
