The Yellow Paint

“The Yellow Wallpaper”
is a well-regarded short story
that explores the descent into insanity
of a depressed housewife
with a controlling doctor husband
and an active imagination
in the process
commenting on
the fundamental societal misconceptions about women
in the late nineteenth century

The yellow paint
on the other hand
is on my kitchen wall
and is much less interesting
because it is not a metaphor
for anything
