My favorite color is brown.
Ma doesn’t get it.
“Why not something brighter,
Like pink or yellow? Brown is so drab.”
But brown is so rich, and warm, and comforting.
Like hot cocoa and Nick, the stray cat we found -
The one with the torn ear.
Carly is brown.
Her dark skin makes her green eyes glow like fireflies.
I wish I was brown, just like Carly.
How come everyone else’s favorite color is white?
