I am standing on the bridge
between chaos and tranquility,
between crimson and greenery.
I want to drink
from that well of blue water,
to graze beneath the hearts of
rounded mountains.
I want to stop
and dance with the dandelions,
to twirl around their seeds, to grow
my own.
I want to expel
black water from my lungs
and redness from my feet.
I want green,
I want blue.
I want to be able to
undo.

Inspired by “The Sheep” by Franz Marc, as portrayed in the featured image.
