Day 5 Dickinson Riff

Dickinson de Luxe

Purple, the color of a Queen (and violets here in hand), is this:
The color of the sun at setting, this and amber.
Beryl best drunk by tongue at noon.

And when at night Auroran swaths fling suddenly
on men, it's this: a kind of witchcraft nature keeps
on hand. Iodine.
