Color/Colour




Once I brought it
into the studio
where it drove me
into madness,
layer upon layer
of nerve bitten nerve.

I was a wreck,
beached and shaken
under all the sudden
sharp brightness
beyond reason and
beyond care for reason

which are probably
one and the same.
Neither black,
as gossip would have it,
nor the singer's blue,
it was yellow

and it burned.
