Jimmy, what color are my eyes?

by amy sharp


sometimes my eyes are green
other times they are blue
depends on
the colors and
the light
how the sun shines on me
or you
how I feel about the person I am looking at
my mom says they are blue like her teacup
when I’m in the woods
my old granny says they are cat eyes
but she has them too
I think I can change them
with a lot of thought
make them silver even
but I also think I can send you messages
in my head
stop clocks
make the world
whisper 
live forever
