Life exposure / Ode to the neutral by LAURA MUNTEANU

Every day
I get
A shade lighter.

So
One day
I’ll be as light
As a sigh,
Floating
Away
Towards
The unknown,
The unfamiliar.

When the last shade
Leaves my body,
I will follow it
Close.
I will try
To hold on
To all the memories
Of all the former days –
It’s only human.

For all the blues
Of my childhood,
All the greens
Of my youth,
And all the turquoise
In between
Will carry my spirit away,
Chanting
And laughing,
And crying,
And screaming –
Get out of the way!

Then we’ll all laugh
And blow soap bubbles
And say our goodbyes.
