Hannah O’Brien – Running Blue

Running Blue

Smoky conversations settle
but settle nothing.
Cryptic words steam
into mouths of months gone by
while submission waves its tired arms
and holds them overhead.
Steady hands stop striking
veiled faces and
make fists with words
scraped from the table
into open palms.
Qualms diluted,
blue runs clear through the murky grey
creating vicious hues of insolence.
Candid yarn unravels and falls
but woolen smirks remain tangled.

And heated speeches blaze,
igniting fibres that won’t
be dimmed by vivid hues.
And smoky conversations settle
but settle nothing.
