"I'll be taking," she said,
"a course in chromophilia."
And so I longed to ask,
"and what will that tell you
about why I chose to alter this grafitti;
to shift its tones from yellow, red,
cyan, gray and white,
to move it into purples and blues,
then punch it up
with flashes of yellow and red?
Will my color choices, then,
be telling you some secret story,
give some hint of how I came to be
sitting in an airport,
nursing a cut on my hand,
and waiting for a long-delayed flight?"
