yet to be titled
punua_maikai

on a day the
 1
sun is uninterrupted, I
 2
raise my hand.
 3
it stops one inch away
 4
from an eyeball
 5
belonging to me, wet
 6
and clear of
 7
obstruction, it dilates,
 8
blinks, for I am
 9
astounded to see a rainbow.
 10
 
 
my skin perspires
 11
enough to start refracting
 12
colors no one knew
 13
existed, but I am aware,
 14
now, of every pastel
 15
one of them; it is a thing
 16
that brings me into
 17
silent chorus, no more
 18
am I monochrome-
 19
nor is anyone at all.
 20
 
 
lift your own arm
 21
soon; if tomorrow is bright,
 22
all the better. look
 23
microscopically close and
 24
even squint a bit, yes.
 25
do it to any surface available-
 26
one and every one
 27
are simple, truthful spectrums
 28
beaming every hue
 29
for us to choose to see.
