A Perfect Shade of Purple (a poem)
Purple is the color of my 2013.
I didn’t choose it, it chose me.
Everywhere I look, purple.
Purple phone, wallet, sweater, nails.
Chasing down plum-colored dreams
that are as juicy as they are beautiful.
It’s a cool, insouciant shade of blue shaken (not stirred) together with a spicy shade of reckless red,
That point where cool indifference kisses breathless passion and they mix and melt
into the perfect shade of purposeful purple passion.
A lot of soul and a little rock and roll.
Let’s do this.
