- What Matters
Scarlet starlets hit the scene
Our rosy lips kiss the dirt
And fade from a rather striking cherry
Falling down to a faint rouge.
Regaining strength on the tangerine tree
Acidic hands take you from me
Afraid of heights, afraid of heights
In the midst of this citrus nightmare.
Building our house of sunflowers on the sand
We’ve got bricks behind lemon wallpaper
And potato chips on our shoulders
Watch up keep the world away.
I ate a stone from a wall today
I wasn’t hungry, but it was covered in moss
And I just wanted to know where to go
Another emerald olive in my martini, please.
An empty void of royal blue
The azure sky is calling you
But you join the navy with a brave façade
And give me your grandfather’s sapphire ring.
We’re treading water, between midnight and bruises
These remarkable jeans we’ve worn so long
Are fraying and shrinking, remember your promise:
“I’ll see you in the Indigo.”
Lavender infancy, our own wonderland
Lying with you in the heliotrope fields
Amethyst silence, bathed in periwinkle
They’ll pour wine on our graves, let it sink in.
Transcending sunburns, we fluoresce
Discarding the paintbrushes, we move in
Into validation and out of the universe,
Having traipsed through the spectrum long enough.
