NaPoWriMo #11

Dear pale blue nail polish,

I'm sorry,
pale blue nail polish,
that I picked the dark blue
over you.

You were just too dull,
while the dark blue gleamed
with the shades of a monochromatic
palette of deep blues

oh, and it reminded me of
the Eyes Like Stars cover-
magic and theater and glittering costumes

and it looks black under the light sometimes
(I always wanted to
try black nail polish, just once.)

oh well. the dark blue is
chipping off anyways.

maybe I'll try you sometime later.

I like how both you and your sister posted poems about choosing colors. :)

And incidentally, I'm wearing black nail polish right this moment....
