Moments to Minutes of Associating Color by Paul Handley

Yellow on the outside
is my favorite color since
it represents a field of lost opportunities,
of which one is keenly aware.
Making mental notes on the bus one day,
then poring over those notes
while on a walk, or waiting 380 feet in
the air while others, the infirm,
young and old are shepherded in and out
of ferris wheel cars. Leaning my head back
to gaze at the cosmos, pulling down the arc,
of the register, to acknowledge
my lack of significance.
A martyr like acceptance lays over me
like a tapestry with the emblem
of a mopey rock band,
since sadness and
profundity are the same to me.
