Two tone poem

Dual: I am not one, 

but I am two.


What does that mean?

and who are you?

My name is Amber,

a pure chroma color,

halfway between


and orange,

and red

unlike another.


Do you see me?


On certain days I'm vibrant berry -


but still opaque,

and deep,


like a loud rouge behind silent lips,

begging for you to ask more about



Other times I'm calm grey -

achromatic and neutral,

floating, by

like a fall leaf,

in the crisp cool breeze.
