N ext to me her thigh presses hard on my soft skin. it isn’t anything but safe. light pressure, a flare of awareness across my skin, and this moment in and out of focus.
O ur eyes meet. blue, brown, green, gray. a false sunrise of pinks clashed on blue skies in a terrible display of beauty. in those eyes lay just a little bit of beauty, just a little bit of everything. it seems like watching universes born and die in billions and billions of seconds, that planet’s floating dust come together and form explosions of rocky color, only to fall apart and float again. every color in the eye of a telescope is you.
R eal life crashes hard on my shoulders sometimes in the spaces between that freckle on my back and the one on my neck. this moment doesn’t have the taste of real life. it feels like waking up sharp and letting my eyes fall, watching colors dance across my eyelids in reds, oranges, pinks, golds and the skies over beaches and lakes and cities and towns. letting my mind draw itself up and float around at the top. listening to quiet air. no thoughts, no feelings, just this, out of word.
A nxiety pumps my heart, all that blood has nowhere to go. these veins were never made for fast track life full of scarlet passions and crimson furys and cherry lips and rose splotched skin, but a slow dream under yellow yolk suns and yellow honey’s slow drag and yellow flowers sway’s in time to light breezes. and then- your fingers are sharp when they dig into spaces between my thumbs and pinkies, and I am a fish caught on hooks after hours and hours of a glass still pond, dragged into a tossing salt ocean burning my mouth, tumbling my head.
Deuteranomalia: This is caused by reduced sensitivity to green light. Deutan color vision deficiencies are by far the most common forms of color blindness. This subtype of red-green color blindness is found in about 6% of the male population,
mostly in its mild form deuteranomaly.
Protanopia: Caused by a reduced sensitivity to red light due to either defective or a lack of long
-wavelength cones (red cones). Some scientists estimate that being a protan is associated with a risk of a road accident equivalent to having a blood alcohol level of between 0.05 and 0.08 per cent.
Tritanopia: People affected by tritan color blindness confuse blue with green and yellow with violet. This is due to a defective short-wavelength cone (blue cone). Whilst
Protanopia and Deuteranomalia are significantly more common in men, tritanopia affects both sexes in equal amounts.
Monochromacy: Only around 0.00003% of the world’s population suffers from total color blindness, where everything is seen in black and white.
