Structural Colour II

Structural colour hits you between the eyes

Like a two-by-four

Refractory colour awash with tones

Breaks the fall

Of the beetle

As it flies towards the light and

Misses.  Again.

There are days when I feel

Like a coleopteran

No feeling for humans

Indifference to myself.

There’s no way for me

To roll off my back and

I keep missing.
