i play with the moon
dear kerry, it writes, in lit and non-lit alphabets
i know you are listening
so get your dark blue pencil
& tell everyone.
write in the spotted darkest darks
write on your knees
write on the floor under the bed & say fuck off to your monsters.
i always wanted to be colors but
the sky was greedy and all your eyes
had dibs on the ones that mimicked every emotion
i am white and yellow and black, or whatever you want to see
make me look important & use me.
