Bolt

The color
pink speaks out

of turn, interrupts red

with a white streak
of thought

grenades. It rains.
Lightning decorates

the lilac sky. Waiting
for a serious dose

of thunder—there is
no blue.

“He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”
― Saint Francis of Assisi

She wants to be
the one who creates
art without using

her hands—wants to be
all heart. When she gets
what she wants, it’s time

to recalibrate
the colors—blue for logic,
green for emotion, yellow

for rigor, red
for everything else.
