The Think Poem

Think pink
the girl says and she is
blonde effervescense with a way
of saying things
that almost makes sense
the smartest people who ever lived
think blue
water still is deeper
the inside of your mind
it is almost like sleep here
to know
and still knowing be helpless
think green
the book has not been read, yet.
we are still growing so green
we have dandelion madness, wish & blow
think grey
fog and embankments and
aren't we all grown-up now
colors too bright now
over our heads in under our heads
we didn't mean to kill others with control
grey is where you know you don't know
think black
aren't we tiresome, when it's
exactly right, perhaps this is
the colors all combined
I wouldn't live with black though
I wouldn't live
I will look for all the colors
or just sit and remember when

  1. I love this poem, especially the opening line and the dog pic that accompanies it :-)
