Desperate for Color in a World Devoid of It

Teetering on the largest ladder I can find,

I make mad lunges for a chunk of sky.

I think I can peel some off like wallpaper,

scratch at it with my fingernails

until it comes apart in my hands.

I just want a piece to bring home –

to tuck under my bed like a secret

and pull out in the middle of the night

as a reminder that darkness

does not stop the color blue

from existing.

Thoughts? I love those.
