Red satin ribbon
in a bow
on the back of her red dress

her pendant a glimmering ruby
and shoes a brilliant scarlet,
with lips like glossy garnets
that taste of cherry coke
and latent insecurities
inside a crimson haze--

everything red.

Who is she trying to fool,
looking so bold,

so red

when everything inside her head
is blue?
