Once, a man never
let his feelings out.
He remembered everything.

One day, he became an explosion.
He threw pink and gray
and all the other colors,
and for the rest of his
life, he was playful.

    Brilliant! It feels like it could be the introduction to my autobiography, and the image that you chose to go with it is perfect.
    Please give my appreciation to Chloe. Thank you.
