Chromatic refers to color or weather or intimacy of the air between two people that surrounds conversation or lack thereof. Within light: color, revelation of pigment so we see Eucalyptus, Monterey Cypress, Wren. As the sun rolls closer to our horizon, we distinguish small gradations of color like the way the center of a feather is darker than the outside boundary. The news thumps against stairs, and rain intensifies morning. Under umbrellas men and women hurry to the station, a few spots of florals. When I switch on the light, you turn over, sigh.
