An Almost Love Story (from supplies on my desk) [Poem Every Day--6]

Cover Image

Spectrum Red sat confined
inside a squished metal tube
amongst the others of his kind

Lemon Yellow,
of sturdier constitution,
lay off in the distance
imagining the fade proof
they might make together

She was always transparent
but he
forever hiding
in his plastic cell

Her futile hopes
wrote fine lines on her face
This non-mixing left her
Mess-free, but
Permanently bitter
