2 Poems by Lisa Pellegrini

Blueberry Streams

Visions of streams soak up blood
that is no more,
turning it violet.
Did I say violent?
The violet weakens.
Now it is shy amethyst.
Memories of violence
I immerse myself in the stream
and disappear.


Trouble is cloaked in shades of pink.
Reckless colors create ruin.
Will she stay?
Will she ever return?
Pray for her.
Her body snaps
like a toothpick
after claiming her last victim.
She breaks too easily--
all but her heart.
