Memories of Yellow

What have we done
in honor of yellow,
marked our books
with checks, then highlighted,
wiped our brow
under an ochre sun?
The blue moon hazes its way
through the night sky,
stars turning silver,
then golden, wink
their yellow mist.

I dreamed you once,
holding out your hands,
scattering and scattering stars.
Your face, your eyes, everything I had known of you
all of it covered in a haze, a menacing halo
of fading
yellow.
