Color







I wrote this while listening to the song, "Shampoo" by Elvis Perkins. Thanks for the inspiration, Elvis. 



blue is the color of her tears
her old uniform
the sky above
red is the color of hell below
blood in her body
and her little small heart
blue is the color of oldness
of the hair on her grandmother's head
and the string of faux pearls
red is the color of live that often slips away
red is the color 
that often slips away
blue is the color of her old uniform
and the sky above 
and hell
below.
Pink is the color of the bed sheets on her wedding day
red is the color of blood that slipped out 
when she birthed her daughters
red 
the 
color of 
passion
life 
love
ruby red lips
and my warm little heart
