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
sunsets
they might make together


She was always transparent
but he
opaque,
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
