...the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life...

29. There was a color, there was a swatch.

The color on the swatch did not match
The color on the wall. The swatch meant
To tell us what would be, saying, This
Is the color beneath the lid, and this
Is what your wall will look like soon.
But small color, perhaps, means
Differently than when expanded onto
The wall of a room, a house, that dresser
Near the window. Your eyes are blue.
Lovely. Too much when coloring all things.
