I see

I cannot pretend to see what it is
there is a color to everyone’s time
it’s a lifetime of blue
a moment of yellow
all yesterdays sparkle in flurries of gold

I cannot pretend to see what it isn’t
rumors shine pale and gray
nothing can ever change that
just lean back and make believe
this is the way dreams are really made

What I see is the violent clash of the gray
guidelines ushering around the rapturous
colors to fill the designs of our lives
squares of green, triangles of red,
trapezoids of orange and turquoise
join me in viewing the way our
lives might fall into place
