Polychrome

You’d do better to let
sleeping dogs lie, he said
but I can’t wrap my head around it

I am glistening onyx wrath &
confusion blue

Stalwart brick red &
Ivory too

I’ve practiced the silent cry
All my life; got it down pat

Suffering swathes a color with no description
It looks like a welt
but feels like a prescription
