Fluo-res-cent

Have you heard the adverb ⚡fluorescently
in the last ten years? How about 🌒darkly,🌘 💬dully,💬
the dormant nature of color?—yet it’s not the flat
tones that make us delight, but the sudden

punches of pure red, the skin
of an orange, the banana peel that scoffs
at you in Mario Kart, before you spin out of orbit to die;
it’s the fluorescent, the burning of the brightest mouthwash,
the neon blue of a lightning bolt as it strikes rain-pattered water.
