Vervain

Walk into a room

and you’ll find

Me

See I'm dark

And hard to spot

But when you look at

Me

You cannot look away

Because I'm pink but not that soft

I'm a purple soup bowl

Sitting at the back of your cabinet

Waiting to be used.

I'm your hippy aunt's precious amethyst

Sitting on her windowsill

That needs to be charged to look its true color again

I'm the lilac sky

That you see on a summer night

With the sound of cicadas in the background

I'm the purple lipstick that you put on for that party

That made you stand out a little too much

And I'm the temperamental lavender

In your garden

That smells good

But always needed some extra care.
