i just need to get this off my chest…

(c) 2011 by margaux delotte-bennett

to me
pink is a color
only enjoyed when it is
naturally occurring

the sky at dusk
fall leaves on japanese trees
flowers that blush while they bloom

pink is not the color of cancer
breast or otherwise
the disease is shit brown
black and blue
sickly shades of green

pink is not the only color
we should shroud our girls in
they are technicolor possibilities
that should not be limited to
Pepto-Bismol (R) hues

pink gives me the blues

it has never been me
Barbie (R) phase and all
growing up I could be seen in
shades of purple and red
colors with spunk and sass

pink was always a whiny, weak color

pink can kiss my @ss
