the DC i be
© 2012 by margaux delotte-bennett

now here is bold and bright
fighting for light to shine under
and through

sometimes blue
seldom green
yellow, brown and red broken into opposing teams
seems white can be right because it reflects so well
with black the belly swells
so full
all now here

we have purple too
in hues from regal to faint
gaudy at times as it paints across
the space where we are joined as rainbows
fused in color wheels
bleeding into light and back out again

drops drip
drops clot
becoming one with prisms held aloft
in hands joined
and made mine

we are minds
held open by hands aloft
held aloft by hands open
held hands that hold

shades that shift and shimmy as they
weave into patterns
with stories told
of passages gained
paths crossed
journeys had and journeys sought
that brought us all to

and now that we are here
now here we are
hands poised to join
but we have to decide
to hold on.
