What Color Are You?

Bent yellow, twisted green,
faded blue, pale pink—
a fluorescent snake
seeking new shape,
new identity.
Your hand,
cushioned in feathers,
flies through memorized twists,
counts turns left, right, left, right.
Triangles snap into squares;
squares become rectangles.
A writhing geometry test,
one color to a side.
Is that the way
it has to be?
