colorful summer


When I was a preschooler
I had a crazy crush on pastels
as I loved the vibrant colors
I ended up tasting a pastel
When my teacher talked about the colors
I loved the red amongst the others
Blood red, apple red, and also the beet
I wished for my cupid bow lips glossy red

I secretly loved the yellow
yellow yolk, yellow banana, yellow cheese, and yellow teeth
when I was caught crunching the yellow pastel
grandfather squeezed a yellow lemon
‘yellow, yellow,’ I said
‘you are a dirty fellow,’ he said

I tried the green followed by the blue
green did not taste as delicious as blue
perhaps I ate them one after the other
I ended up having Pica flu

while the family enjoyed
colorful ice cream scoops
I waked up to constellation tablets
and spinach soup
I heard Summer brings joy
but my vacation ended
being cooped indoor

#OctPoWriMo 2018 – What Color Is It?

  1. I remember coming across pastels in some hand me down art supplies when I was fairly young. I was amazed – they were like crayons but so much cooler. I’m glad it didn’t occur to me to taste them, I could definitely see myself doing that!
