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.

The synesthete in me sees fearless as purple,

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.

C’mon 2013,

Let’s do this.
