pallid palette



these wings could use
some color be
-yond the pale-pooled
milky moon murmur
of their own skin.

let’s shade ourselves
in indigo and jade,
play up our verdant
eyes and surprise
the world
in saffron ver
-million splendor.


i think
i might be ready
to crack open
this sallow sky

………………….and fly.

prompted by margo roby.
