Perched atop a high roof,
a cat of iridescent ink cuddles with a boy in black
alone together, their heads are raised upwards
bewitched by the azure's allure.
Inky eyes enthralled by pure cerulean skies,
the bold blue washes over the cat like revitalizing waters,
it feels its body growing vibrant and lustrous,
brimming with brightness matching the sun.
The boy's mind blanks out
his chromatic mind cannot comprehend the heaven's hue,
for it is nothing but grey
colour cancelled out by expanded shades
a blotched sun burns black,
beckoning him bitterly to look away
and he lowers his head,
not wishing a frostbitten mind.
He looks down again at the dirt and dust,
stones strewn out like finely grated bones,
between rows of trees like teeth
entrenched in the earth's maw.
