Red As Hope

Folder: 
Vintage Words

 

 

.

Anemic prose bows to

full blooded poems that scream

living and live knowing death

lurks, leaning on the corner

lamp post, grinning.

.

Seeing red is fine especially

when the mind is on fire.

Watching red surround

you after a leap to death

is wasted, eventually mopped up,

and usually quickly forgotten.

.

Red is the color of all things

wonderful and bright to bring

smiles where frowns would thrive,

shouting love and peace

on a poster or tee-shirt to make

the world hum delight.
