13 // manganese oxide (and others)

complete chance really
that I was walking past when he took
samples from the furnace

stopped me in my tracks
it’s like ultramarine but bluer
think cobalt but bluer

and bluer like takes-your-breath-blue
a stable blue a blue that you can rely on
a blue you can’t stop looking at

or haven’t you ever tried to create
something but stumbled upon something
more beautiful instead
