“Banana,” “Mint” and “Lavender”
showcased in “Prussian Blue” –
four monikers on markers
lend four points-of-view to hue.
But I must use them ruthlessly --
defy that prettiness:
be only satisfied when they
suggest a psychic mess
of facial ambiguities
which leave an open door --
averse to any labelingthat doesn’t promise more.
