color theory part 1

An email, one line: "What color are stars?" It was almost midnight. I thought for a moment.

stars are the color of ice and the color of air
of the space in my arms when no one is there
they're the color of fire, burning up
or pinholes of light in a dark paper cup
they're the color of water reflecting the moon
and the hot blazing light of a long afternoon
they're the color of sleep when I'm closing my eyes
like ten thousand snowflakes in ten thousand skies
