e on the palette


the
e in red
is
somehow
redder,
and in
yellow,
yellower.

But the ee in
green,
the
double e-
sees
trees
greener.
Whilst
vert,
cowls
in
darkened
evergreen.

—-

i’s light
shines
white.

  1. The connotative meanings of letters has always fascinated me since Rimbaud assigned colors to vowels! This associative quality of langugage, to spur associations and images, forms a big part of poetry’s power, I think. In stripping language down to its elements, as you have done, you bring us round to the way helps us to construct our worlds, the nails of meaning so to speak. That we can actually think that such things as letters are things, however, is an illusion, but a lovely illusion nonetheless.
