Forecast by Amy Bilodeau

here is your perfect blue thought

your mouthful of blues


no one told you to reach

for the sugar in the cupboard


by climbing the knives of your longing

memory fills in


the blank spaces

with the colors it chooses


house shoe bicycle iris you

if you mumble


flowers mean I miss you

when you attic your words


sometimes they stay

condensation clouding the glass


open the window when it rains
