colors of the alphabet

a found poem

Some people
have
a brain anomaly
that makes it so

If they read the word
"blue"
in blue or black text

They can't tell
which one is actually
blue ink

There are all kinds of
permutations
with smell and colors
of the alphabet causing
people to [taste] a color
or [see] a taste

It has to do with what
is close to what
in the brain

And perhaps we all have this
just a little bit


Found in an email from a friend who has requested anonymity, but was kind enough to allow me to publish just. this. little bit.

Wow. There was a contestant on Jeopardy not long ago that had this very thing. So interesting...

Yes. I know. Some parents get stuck watching Dragon Tales over and over. Here at the McQ household it's Jeopardy. We play the board game, too. With lame clickers, I might add.
