Blue in Green

1.    life moves from code orange to red

malevolence    a side effect

of governmental discord

the 21st century burns after fires cease


2.    I walk past boarded up stores & vacant streets

see rainbows slip into the void

but blue & green step back         become allies

blue in green green in blue


3.      Miles Davis plays his trumpet

my speculations are put to rest

colors of the sky mellow after dusk

I align with blue & green
