NEW WORLDThey allowed me a last request before they sent me into the dark. I asked to be a creature of two colours. They agreed - they didn’t care, they said, because there would be no one there to see me. They said they would allow me to be a creature without legs. I asked them if I could be something new, never seen. Their brows angled for a while. In the end they agreed – it didn’t matter, they said, because there would be no one there to see.
I live in the darkness, but I can still be seen – they hadn’t understood that my colour choices were luminous. I am the colour of sky and grass: in the dark pools I look at my reflection, colour my world and imagine the places I am no longer permitted to be.
