This is the color of DREAM

we are children, unseeing
     we open our eye
     unlocking the verse and meter

This is the color of SAD

baby girl, club-footed
     opens her eyes.
     pressed between hot sun
     and rough mountain
     welcomed to the world
     by no one.

This is the color of GREED

whatever is written here
     it is not enough.

This is the color of LOVE

one plump drop
     sneaks from a fang.

This is the color of DREAMS

one by one
     we close our eyes
     no longer children.
