YInMn (#2e5090)

By RC deWinter

they say there’s nothing new under the sun
but guess again
quite by accident
scientists created a blue
unlike any other in existence

with a bonus
it will never fade

born of a triplet of oxides
already christened with a hex
a chemical potpourri impervious to oil
and more importantly (to me anyway)

water

not even tears can dim its brilliance
it will never fade

i hear they’re looking for a name
for this new shade
i’ve got the perfect one
heartbreak
because like this blue
there are other things that never fade
