Bitter Colours

This bitterly coloured wind,

Steelyard blue,

Cuts like a knife piercing the skin, cold as frosted sparks,

Your bitter-coloured smile,

Pursed pink

Sucks life as an Octipi sucker, you leave ugly marks where you have touched,

The bitter colour of your love,

Redacted black,

Blocks light as a lid over our present and future, our past is already lost,

This bitter colour of my life,

Sloth belly green,

Moss grows slow and so I’m sorry for myself in my verdigris naivety.

The bitter colour of my death

Sari silver with gold

Highlighted, exclaimed and underlined, punctuated with a full stop
