Cadmium Red

the color of choice

my mouth

lipstick

filet mignon not blue

my lover full blast

brain groin heart

synapses unmedicated

free range thoughts

uncaged unclipped.

I flip cadmium yellow

moods turn green

other side flaming

through orange

subdues you

grey beige

fade like a fresco.
