call-her blind

sugar green
indigo mold
sun blue
blind white
brown flame
turd silver
from the bottom
mist red
or eye must've
just misread
lead violet
led astray
on an ash[ed] ray
pink pupil
till they spill
must read out loud
on neon yellow
purple punks
till they spells
must dig out proud
on freon below
adjunct hue
ego black
ready red
off-white tax
purple spells
white the hell
free-knee-on junk
egg-white frank
red joke on
yoga yellow
spleen green
brown yogurt

[thanks to mandolyn, jenakajoffer,
JKWebster sir, and DeformedLinus
for the colorful exchange]

for my sunflower, nisetru,
from your sun, a blackhole
without hue

we've all got an inner-blonde, an inner-idiot, a moron and dim-wit with which we relate to when we don't get it -- not seeing this is the overtly-educated conceit that planning what you say, mangling many metaphors, will make it complete -- we fall over our words, tumbling down to where cliche' is more like playing the clown - we excite to absurdity when our inner-idiot stares at the dumb things smart people compare; like why is bra singular and panties plural? -- our home is merCuriously illuMentating 'round a black-hole, where all the light 'n dirty cloths go -- where insight is an invertendo move, in which giving more than you get, is really love --

but its been said before by those smarter than me, if it weren't for the inner-moron we'd not experience glee ...

fractal, you slam-jamming, jejune-hamming, jaunty-juiced writer, shooting from the hip with your lip like a yoga-yellow lighter ... heh heh

Cool poem.  Though I'd omit line 22.  It disrupted the flow a bit me thinks.  Also, I think a more suitable title would be 'call her color blind'.  What do you think ?  Otherwise, nice write.

thanks, JKWebster sir.

but |22 is there shake the reader just a bit --
a little tremor there, if you like.

it was fun exchanging words with you again.

ey Alc, i've just noticed i ended up with .38 lines in this.
i think the headstand was really meant to dig holes in
the skull by spinning on the head so the inner-moron
could be grounded.

out - 23
dot on 38
 — unknown

close enuff to being the wrong answer
but thanks for playing, hehehehehe.

no, seriously, are you on drags?
have been itching to switch to 'ashed ray'
there for awhile now and the on-ins are
fixed fixtures on the wall.

23 is my fave michael jordan number so
it stays, too.

and the dot on .38 maybe means you should
read the whole thing in one single breath, hehe.

but this is not like doing 26 non-stop i-knows
in 'aint no sunshine when she's gone' so it would
really be pushing it too far if you did have one
single breath left but spend it on this perforated

what's the color of melancholy, sir_I _clan?
can you tell me?
; )
 — fractalcore

you're a tad slow today
so i just went ahead and
rode the ash[ed] ray.

what do you think?
