Three Poems
Untitled, 1954

no color names
permit turn to
deference in a
fated humble sought
hurdles reference whit
to this cursed ridge
as if in onslaught

Blue and Gray, 1962

better blue in light
red letter day
shedding gets flown
the green of wished for sorts
opaque in crying
transparent bricks

No. 13 [White, Red on Yellow], 1958

a capital stack underpins

the mine
this color

was never of a tube
