Alina Gregorian: Color Theorist

Tell me what you know about colors
how they aggrandize on your shoulders
as I rest my thoughts upon your brow.
And suddenly you know all the reasons
why π has been counted through the ages
as a mechanism for developing an apathy
calculator—not that we want one—but
isn’t it odd the way you don’t want
too much green on your lips.
