Popping Red This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

March 13, 2011
Red pops from strawberries like a surprise hello,
And blankets a cardinal’s regal chest,
And colors a Fuji apple in strokes.

Red pops from my freshly painted toenails,
And stains my lips from a cherry popsicle,
And colors the jelly inside of a Swedish Fish.

Red pops from a fragrant spring rose,
And halts drivers from a stop sign,
And colors the clay earth below.
