Shades of Night

I Cornflower

Flat cornflower sky at the edge of dusk
the building, telephone towers, trees and traffic
pressed hard against it, only their overlap
providing perspective. Behind a light
winks out and shadow opens. The shadows
on the ground and pressed against the sky

II Indigo

The took it out of the spectrum
because no one could quite say what
it was. They had stopped watching
nightfall, when cornflower
mixes with sheer black
until neither blue, nor black, nor
purple, nor any other color
but indigo rings the world with purpose
before starlight shatters it.
