Question and Answer

 

Question and Answer

When all our colors fade to white
and night is day and day is night,
and I am you and you are me,
erased for perpetuity,
when spectral is our whole domain,
when death obtrudes, what will remain?

When death obtrudes, what will remain?
When spectral is our whole domain,
and all our colors fade to white,
when night is day and day is night,
we will be one—our you and me
erased for perpetuity.


Prompt words today are perpetuity, erase, spectral, obtrude and white.

      Thanks, Sadje. I was fooling around, trying to decide whether to change the order of the couplets and at one point realized that the arrangement of one formed a question, the other an answer, so I put them together into one poem and published it. Some fun things can happen when we rearrange.
