shades

I asked them

what color were they feeling

learned that yellow could hold your excitement

could sing your joy could

be the same as sea foam sprinkled with glitter

came to understand that a lot

of purple is in the

world for a million different

reasons red can be a

very solemn place to sit

or can mean you feel

very tall with no limits

someone claimed the rainbow

because they could not

decide came to understand

they were not in their body

smashing up against

the kaleidoscope fragmenting

outside
