chiens diamant

I’m writing to you now

about color

not that it’s gone anywhere

not really


it’s passed us by

so here we go:


you make me feel blue.

not the way of clichés,

as in:

you make me so blue,

I don’t know what to do

so blue, so blue.

but rather in the way of something

deep and dark

something approaching

a great pressurized depth.

the look of something steep

that’s the way I feel about most things

including me

and you’re in there somewhere, too


the hues change

remember the way your toes feel

warm pond water

that’s known as green

seeing as you can’t see through it

I don’t know what you want

or what you want from me

and it’s scary

but isn’t it a little thrilling

at the same time?
