Blue Mixed With White

A poem

Photo by Nick Hillier on Unsplash

Blue was mixed with white

And its strength was enslaved

This cloudless sky

Became blotchy

Brewed like black coffee

Which I can’t stand

Get used to my tall flat whites

Served abundantly

When you are not here

And I am glad

From all joints cut

Conflicting coils

Convolute only

In my brain

While you are there

Probably painting paths

Until you catch

New adventures

Out of the corner of your eye

I regret

That I ever looked aside

Too concentrated

On my own life


As many colours as I need

To dye my world sufficiently

No mixing

With yours

With too many extraneous shades

Bringing only

Unnecessary potions of haze
