Poisonous berries, mushrooms, frogs
Look but don’t touch
Touch but don’t taste.
So many shades of lipstick and
It’s never the right red.
Red signs and lights will stop your car.
Red capes enrage bulls and enrobe catholic cardinals
And spotting the kind that can fly is lucky.
Red is lucky in China
Red will not be quiet.
A reliable red backpack
A raspberry beret from the second-hand store.
Three shades of red stockings
Five favorite dresses, seven sweaters and
Too many pairs of sneakers in various states of decay.
Remember the “Red Shoes”:
When pretty redheaded Moira
Put them on she knew she
Had done something wrong.
“Lady in red is dancing with me.”
Mary of Scots and Elizabeth I
Lucille Ball, Ginger Rogers, Clara Bow
Tilda Swinton, Annie Lennox, Tori Amos
Kate Bush, Kate Winslet,
Kate Hepburn, Cate Blanchett.
Bette Davis.

PrincessPunkin, originally uploaded by brigidbrigid.


Popularized by virgins,
We've been told that the good guy wears it always.
Bleached bones and ligaments.

Sterilized plastic calipers before a gynecological exam,
and that which is most difficult to maintain in paper, cloth, and teeth.
Seasonally/regionally: Fox, owl, hare, goose, ptarmigan.

A naked dash and leap into
a frigid glacial pool, and the adrenaline rush
that follows after.

White hot lead, searing pain,
ecstasy, and some deaths.


Black is wherever
all of what I just wrote went
when my computer crashed.
Black is the qualities of the gaps in my memory
made manifest.

Black is a Black-light Night
at a goth club and the Bitch
who throws me shade, and says to my face
that my "blacks don't match."

The inside of a barrel of crude oil.
Black is charred animal bones.
Black is lung cancer.

Black is the heavy velvet curtain
of a blessed dreamless sleep.
Black is the cloak of the apparition
that has been haunting the corner
of my room
for the last two nights.

Black is more of an assertion than a question.
Black is the high desert on a moonless night.
Black is what the light is like inside me.

Black patent leather.
Black enamel lacquer.
Shiny vinyl records.
Defensive nail polish.
