My Favorite Color

Feb. 28, 2008

Stop, danger, train crossing ahead

Fire bright, not a color for the dead.

Sassy, trashy, sometimes classy

its a color that won't let you

just pass me.

Too young for it, too old for it

never too bold for it.

1/3rd of the U.S. flag,

and 1/3rd of the Black pride tag.

Beautiful and ugly like the blood

seen at births and at deaths.

Will be my favorite color until

I breathe my very last breath.

Second Place Dreams

Feb. 28, 2008

Shiny nickels, dimes, and quarters

JKFs and Susan B. Anthonys

No patinas like on my

lonely Lincoln penny.


Valuable, beautiful, regal and true

Repping for wisdom when tinting hairs,

but forever the black sheep for

Olympic cheers.
