Yellow

Prague Old Tramby Yuriy Shevchuk

Yellow railings on the tram, like solid streaks of sun
Yellow triangles repeating patterns on rows of seats
Yellow stripes on the roadside blurred into a continuous stream
Yellow balloon trapped in the branches of a twisting tree
Yellow bird singing atop a red, sloping roof
Yellow car illegally parked with a
Yellow ticket placed on the window
Yellow shirt of a woman clutching her
Yellow purse as she stands to depart
Yellow blanket wrapped around a baby holding a
Yellow rattle shaped like a giraffe
Yellow signs streak by in yellow blurs of light and color
The world is a collage of shapes and colors
When you see it, everything becomes unreal
A replica of the city, like a cardboard set
In a child’s play
