like a shade of dawn

originally published in Libretto Magazine


in shadow the glow is soft

in sunlight it’s hard candy

a room in a house through

trees with a purple-pink light


you can’t read by it

draw by it

knit a sweater or

darn a sock


you can lie, though, surrounded

by how it makes you feel


which is . . . ?



ready to embark

with the color inside

draped on a rib

rising & falling

with the breath


this is a shade for




slow glides & small



this is the color of someone

ready to leave it all behind
