swamped blue

June 10, 2017

fifteen, fell in love with a color
(seventeen, you)
with tinted chrome and feigned filters
i fell in love with blue
(seventeen, you)
i let it moss and spread, corral and lead
gave my reins over to the self imposed hue
(seventeen, you)
even in my fantasies, i can’t let it go
i let it creep and domineer it into actuality
in that swamp, further in,

my room, further in,

that slough

(seventeen, you)
