cool colors [poem]

image

it’s the cool colors
     the blues
          the greens
     the violets
colors that soothe me
playing pressure valve to
these overcharged emotions
this world is a cacophony of life
so many
     people and
          places and
     things
in movement
I seek balance in the shadows
     in winter’s quiet
          in stillness
anything
to tame my inner fire and
keep this kindling heart safe from
spontaneous combustion
