Even now
With the daylight hours constricting
And the midday warmth
Just a yellow flash in the sky
And blue dots popping into oblivion
In my brain’s back rooms

Each footfall sending out a rainbow
On the cold concrete walk
Thinking
“this isn’t so bad”
And straining my ears
For the color
That the fading plants play
