Black and Blue

Black and blue.
Colours that go
together
usually
a perfect match
usually.

Red is different.
It stands alone
and shouts
and screams
and bleeds
and bursts
into flame.

But there is black at the heart
of the fire,
black sticks
that make
it’s bare bones.
And it needs air
to burst
into flame.
Less air, though
to burn with a blue flame
to breathlessly consume
the black parts.

Blue and black
the remnants are lying there
breathless.
Black and blue.
Beaten.
Broken.
Waiting for the red.
