• The Box 69: INDIGO

    Color: Indigo

    Song: "Tarot" Cassandra Wilson

    What does it all mean?
    All these colors?
    These symbols?
    These signs?
    It's all so busy
    While I'm trying to be simple
    And speak plainly.
    I can't read minds.
    I can't read tea leaves
    Or bones
    Or stones.

    I read lips when they move, "I love you."
    I read heart thumbs like morse code
    Dashes and hashes made from you taking my breath away.
    I read fingertips across your body
    Braille to the my blindness
    Not wanting to see
    The truth.

    What does it all mean, lady,
    When you turn over precious pocket art
    and tell me about me?
    When you point to the stars
    and show me to me?
    When you cradle the moon
    and deliver me to me
    in hard crashing high tides
    and low rolling swoons?

    And by the time the sun rises,
    The reading is over.
    My indigo mood long left me walking home
    Soul touching the bottom of the ocean
    Swimming about
    Seeking light
    Faintly up
    Faintly there.

    Then, my heart expands.
    I float
    Rising far beyond uncertainty
    And my indigo blues.
    And I am ok.

    I go back to the lady
    With the cards
    Sit before her
    The cards are different
    because I am different.
    I'm in a different indigo mood today.
    I'm in the shallow end
    Where it ain't that deep.
    I stay
    And pay my coins
    Because I enjoy her company.

    And by the time the sun sets,
    the reading is over.
    I feel new arms envelop
    And engulf me
    In love
    I look down
    And find
    They are my own.

    I guess it wasn't in the cards for us.
