Silver is the color of
a dolphin pod,
swimming
in the ocean;

A shiny
bottle cap
on the ground,
waiting
to be picked up
and added
to a collection;

a brand new
paint tube
in Art class;

a stone,
at the bottom
of a wishing well;

a motorcycle,
engine purring,
before it zooms
past all the cars.

Silver is the color of
rare
diamonds.

Bender’s bottom —
glamorous,
metallic;

the fog
on a cold winter’s day;

a castle
from a Grimm fairytale;

smoke —
thick,
polluting,
following close behind
a spaceship.

Silver is the color of
a dog tag,
on a newborn puppy,
in a sad
and no-fun
kennel.
