barely words for the blues

it’s one of the hardest games to play juniper says
about naming the colors splashed across the sky
and gathering at the horizon
as the sun sets
i agree i say
but yet, we still come up with:
neon sign for a martini bar in palm springs
prom dress that is shiny but not sequinny
tail lights
marbleized stained glass
pink easter egg

strawberry banana baby food
juice in a glass
and juice in a glass set on a table in the kitchen where the sunlight coming in through the window passes through

but maybe
in the end
there are barely words
for the blues
