pink to gold


February 2014


rabbit eyes, you have – all pink

what’ve you been doing?

"checking the stars all day" – she says

and turns to laugh

white upon blue, like foam on people’s faces

when they choke or faint on days of sad


rabbit eyes, no doubt – all pink

what’ve you been up to?

"painting my house all night" – she says

and starts to cry

white upon white, just lacking any talent

thus rely on those who know some stuff


rabbit eyes, poor girl – all pink!

i see you fading

"down rabbit-holes" – she says

and falls apart

into a place of numb, almost mute darkness

let her heart of gold do all the shine
