apologies for the orange paper

poor orange,
weird and misplaced

yellow, quieter
gentler, bright
innocent and polite

not like green
bold, fantastic, everything
all the patterns in life

red, my god
hell, sex and hunger
blissful heat, passion and fire

and blue
the big
deep
ocean
that’s it

hey brown
murky, muddy
dirt and wood

there’s grey
all slate and industry
exaulting, cities
lonely and beautiful

white, bright light
cotton, wind and lace

and black
perfect
black.

(ohwoops, purple. how we always seem to forget you)
