night blindness


color me stained as the ink splash fell
as bottle broke as adrenaline blood
in anxious streams the octopod left

color me night in igneous sweats
dark curly clouds thick eyebrow storms
some sexual healing some daily frets

color me brown in espresso shots
in sunlight blazes in rain cloud paths
on paved gold dust under clear blue skies

color me pale in scavenger urges
cross me deserts like the raven flies
closer to atopia where new seasons lie

color me bleeding at the edge of a night
cut swathes of secret waters to fight the good fight
color me i feel so black and white
