pink can be

pink can be
affordable today
and not tomorrow,
quite arbitrarily,
we are enmeshed
in the delicate
engine of supply
and demand,
intentionally

for six months, Citi

for six months, Citi
has been sending me
embossed invitations to
increase my credit
limit, courtesy of
age and the dental
bills that accompany
a life of chewing none
too thoughtfully. with
a bit of wear and
tear, the texture
becomes quite
delicious, that familiar
corporate-identity-
blue (Pantone 288)
laced across the
buttercreamy envelope,
like icing on a cake –
my fingers are
just as dirty

in a parallel

in a parallel
universe, it is still the
weekend, and because
we live comfortably
and are doing something
as normal as holding
a garage sale,

about the color
of our skin
over the
commonality
of sharing
perceived treasures

first thing, saturday

first thing, saturday
morning, you take
the temperature
of our nation without
fail – another
shooting, another
breach, a familiar
unrest, a polished
contempt – i am
in the other room,
hanging on until
brunch, waiting
for a bloody peace
