Lupines by Kayla Proulx

Purple,
It was always purple
Like the hottest flame, dancing
Then a cool ice blue
Purple like the lupines
In Sugarhill
The field of
Curling petaled heat

Blue
Of clear cloud dripping sky
And a splash
Shivering water
Of echoing drops
In April
Stuttering
Chattering
Wordless lips
And lupines in June

The sweet earth
Was where I found my fire.

 

Kayla is a genderfluid bisexual poet who thinks that if she buys fountain pens and a broken typewriter it will make her more likely to sit down and write. Her succulent Jolene is her best critic.
