Ideas about red

For Sound-Bites 7.0, “Sounds of Red”


Red is the color of strength,

the most attractive color,

the color you wear on T.V.

It was my teacher’s pen,

hieroglyphics all over the margins,

blanket that’s still around the Christmas tree.

Pepper’s collar, Jake’s winter jacket,

underwear I bought for December 23rd,

negative wire in the circuit, negative balance in the bank,

lobsters, cranberry/raspberry/cherry pie.

Red is blood beating, heart, all of our insides.
