ode to color chemistry 

sun sets pace shorter days
cooler nights chlorophyll
farmers climb cork carts

sleep as donkeys pull them
home. first green to snore
signals peacocks to leap

celery walls shake a tail
feather anthocyanin to
purple carotene to carrot

xanthophyll to bathe xanadu
daffodils in gingko gold
cranberry to feather fire

mountains elves to
stash back pockets
for nakedness to come
