    Blue Bottle Fly

    blue bottle fly


    blue bottle fly
    chillin' on a screen
    watches a child in a sailor's cap
    scampering quickly by

    following on his heels
    his dog named spike
    wearing a gilded collar
    cost half a dollar bill

    father is a barkeep
    he keeps a good bar
    banks half his money
    he'll go far

    blue bottle fly
    catches a scent on the breeze
    skunk cabbage and goldenrod
    its bee's knees

    spike begins to bark
    the child has fallen down
    wailin' like the dickens
    in the afternoon sun

    blue bottle fly
    buzzes loudly to the throng
    like he was a tenor
    belting out his song

    father comes a runnin'
    the barflies help themselves
    the child gets cradled tightly
    spike then hushes down

    blue bottle fly
    lits high up in the air
    red eyes scoping out the countryside
    pheromones signaling kith and kin

    The Color of the Dust Storm

    “Dust storm” is a kind of gray.
    Some say it might be pink,
    But when it’s blowing fast my way
    I don’t attempt to blink.

    Illusion is a Color

    Illusion is a color
    By confusion rendered duller
    If in or out of fashion
    Peel off the dress
    I'd be impressed
    By skin and eye and passion

    Next: Feldgrau

    Just far enough from mainstream to look stupid.

    family lore

    family lore


    immaculate starched feldgrau.
    polished blackboots.
    stark contrast to the distant
    theatre behind lines drawn
    by men of little sanity.

    feuer! an officer barks.
    a cannon deafeningly reports.
    another.
    the dogs of war unleashed.
    indiscriminate.
    yellow shells reach apogee.

    entrenched, cousin 'arry counts
    beneath his breath.
    mud and comrades' blood stain
    his greatcoat. then.
    concussion rips off his mask.
    a quick gasp of intake.
    frantic scrabble. mask!

    in a fugue 'arry sees the sherry
    coloured gas slowly settle. mask!

    'arry somehow survives long enough
    to be transported home.

    family lore.

    the war to end all wars.

    thank heavens.

    Lilac

    A purple fit to shine a queen
    Or king in softer light,
    To dignify with dreams unseen
    As patience hides what’s rough and mean,
    To bloom as day grows bright.

    Celadon

    A Celestial Embodiment 1: A Faith


    Lightsome as a sea of celadon

    Immutable hearts each paragon

    Beings endowed by their creator

    Effulgent countenances greater

    Rays celestial embodiment all

    United purpose answer the call

    Majestic spirits; sweet orison

    Candy Apple Red

    Snow White would likely want one, too,
    Sweet with red that’s shiny, new.

    n92762 ?


    Android is green; bilious too
    a mobile OS both lean and true
    My Kindle (Fire) has a fork -
    worthy of Guðmundsdóttir, Björk !
    Why n92762 ?

    Alice Blue

    Icy white with green and blue,
    But paler, not as bright a hue
    And wonderful like Alice who
    Enjoyed it once as we do, too.

    Desert Sand

    White with little life and gray,
    My intuition’s mocking me
    And leading me astray.
    A lover lost in play,
    My mind leads me away
    To anywhere and carelessly.

    Felling the faux hue, red of the ruse
    outnumbered welts tell belt's been amused

    Supple and soft swells; welling within
    burgundy swirls, striped amaranth skin

    Twisting it tightly, watch and you'll learn
    glistening brassieres taken to turn

    Salty foam soap suds? Scourers awry
    pitchforks and bayonets; even supply

    Whites framing pinks, grips scalded true
    desperately scrubbing away at residue

    Wet pants and a nickname, the low hourly rates
    no rouge known deeper than that shame on my face



    Next: Amarillo

    creative eyes will rise with it's differences
    differences to ingrain

    showing light Amarillo
    Amarillo as cooperation goes

    Self reflect to over collapse
    ideas won't give dabs of anything

    go through editions if aloud
    ingrain going


    next: parakeet

    Parakeet Colors

    The colors of the parakeet
    Will vary like a wheel
    That spins around through sour, sweet,
    Through any way you feel.
