I like to write in red
of blood and passion,
of violence and
the words leap wicked off the page.
I like to write in green
the deepest forests
haunt my eye,
fertile fields and
the path I trace back to my birth.
I like to write in blue
of endless sky and
of rivers’ crawl and
the depth of possibilities.
I like to write in black
of shadow lives and
this is how I count my breaths.
