The orange of goodbye has to come from somewhere (a poem)

Based on a poem by S. R. Mason, particularly the title…

The decision to dissipate
is not one taken easily

Molecules can drift only so far
before they blow apart

and the atoms attach themselves
to different formations

in vain attempts
to evade futility

and regain some semblance
of their former utility

The glow found in blue ceilings
is a mystery to the layperson

but those who believe that magic is real
understand
