four shades, black

when i was small i told my art teacher during a lesson of colors
that there were four shades of darkness
i can't remember exactly what i meant, there, at seven
but i do remember squinting at the color wheel on the wall
blending the visions together like i would with the television.
i don't think she had any idea what i was talking about 
but there's a chance she did,
there's always a chance with humans.
"quit sitting on your knees," she said.
