What if…

What if exhaust fumes were purple...

City buildings
  bathed in amethyst,
and windows
   tinted to wisteria.

Lunching on plum benches
     in a bruised park,
sunflowers nodding magenta.

    Would washing machines 
whirl out 
    the debonaire sweat of Unicorns

and surfers watch
    storm water run
           into a periwinkle sea?
Perhaps then,
  we might look up
   and notice the sky
   presaging endless thunder.
