crayons not included

 

Does anyone remember the Magic Coloring Book?

 

If you held it this way,

and flipped through its pages,

it displayed wonderful full-color pictures.

 

If you held it that way,

like magic, everything was gone,

completely blank pages.

 

And if you turned it around,

and opened it up,

it was normal,

with pictures to color.

 

That’s my life.

Crayons not included.
