We sit in a long white room
at either end of a long white table
tableclothed in white, white dishes
and white utensils, servants dressed
in white. The table is too long
for conversation, so we sit
in the long white room, listening
to white noise playing softly.
Only the painting of a red square
in its white frame on the white wall
breaks the whiteness. We look
at the centerpiece, a white vase
of white chrysanthemums. We watch
the room dissolve, fade to white.
