Excited (Green)

I’m excited at the thought of leaving
all this familiar pasture.
I’m told that the grass is greener
on the other side of the hill.
I hope not.
I know green.
I want to know blue and yellow too.

Toronto, December, 1970

Note: the reference to wanting to know yellow and blue, components of green, was also a crude play on the titles of two Swedish movies, I am Curious Yellow and I am Curious Blue which were infamous in the late 1960’s.
