Vomit

 

Citrine

Sepia

Chartreuse.

Paints the floor in

Vast negligence.

 

Eyes

 

Sapphire

Onyx

Steel.

Fixing upon

My sisters face.

 

A fist

 

Crimson

Vermillion

Cerise.

Dripping from her jaw

Head bent over.


 

This is one of my first attempts at an abstract, modernist style of poem. I decided to focus upon colour to describe the imagery for me, keeping the action of the piece ambiguous and somewhat mysterious.

I hope you like it!
