I Color (Gray)


Ever hear Weather Report play Birdland?

That’s me: as assertive as a skyscraper, as insistent as a bridge.

I’m a clean whistle.


Spider webs on hurricane fences. Art Deco decorating.

Break bubbles against your teeth, jingle the change in your pockets, and there I am, stinging the tip of your tongue, making the insides of your ears itch.

On brisk days I flip up your coat collar and steer you along the avenue, confident as a metronome, ticking ticking─ “This way, please. Quickly! Quickly!”

I can almost imagine that metronome ticking away the time. “This way, please. Quickly! Quickly!” Time certainly seems to pass quickly these days! That is a great spiderweb photo with the droplets of water.

It's an interesting exercise to try, imagining that you're a color. I think you'd enjoy doing it too. Thanks for stopping by! Best, Jill

Stunning imagery! Far removed from dirt farming. Really interesting.
