Pink, Above and Below

Pink
above and below
She knows this tavern
is a cavern of
half-truths and full-blown lies

Icarus and ice

Yet, this morning
la colorosa* bathes
the barstools and bodies
laid waste by last night

Sunrise brings the glow
of a knowing
that this day
there will be change

Her heart will melt
inthe pink glow of sundown

* la colorosa means “pink” in Spanish – at least, in Puerto Rico.

Hannah at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads wanted color, a cave (and what better cave than a bar!), a hunger, adventure, and ice. Pull up a barstool and tell me yours. Also on the margins at Poets United.  Peace, Amy
