[message to] the fluent chameleons by Peter Schwartz
we are, all of us
fluent chameleons
practicing our body
language under a
mercenary sun

drunk and hapless
behind the curtains
of another life we
seek a power greater
than color

we are told at the
equinox there will be
fireworks and rooftops
but the invitation is a
little hole in the
worst part

of ownership
where our shoulders
either wear shoes
or send sleep like
a postcard to a

long lost reservoir
where nobody is
making coffee for
the dead and the
living are getting

angry like cameras
whose colors lurk
outside the very idea
of colors; we are

all of us fluent
beyond syllables painting
mostly mercenary suns
because the last shade
on the palette is

simply within.
