color of rose

Standard

(10/27/02)

we held her cold plump hands
and told her it was OK
right before she opened one eye
peered at us
and died
she’s held true on her promises
to haunt us to no end
yelling out instruction from eternity
in her spare time
evil practical jokes via Bette Midler
infect us and we can only laugh
to know now that
souls not humans
have color that isn’t of rainbows
and humor that isn’t of this earth
