The Color Thread...add your own color

Green

Marshlands
Sticky between the toes
Slimy under fingernails
Drop your head under the smiley serpents
Kiss the frogs
Tap your hip
Melancholy and molasses falling
Katydids and banjos sing from the trees
Smear mud on your cheek and talk to the swamp
Gators are docile
Mosquitoes listen better when the sun shines on the swamp
The air is tasty
Cattails toast well in the sun
Being green is swell

deep.
unadulterated.
purple.

throwing down the gauntlet between the calm sweet coolness of blue the lifebloodfire of red, turning one another inside out, through and over again.

power. knowledge. wisdom.

rarity.

gives flight to birds of paradise,
mingles with the destinies of royalty
gives quiet notice of forthcoming zodiacal light.

profane and regal. tropical and frostbiten. bravado and depth.

purple.

not shit.

dirt.

it smells good.

tall grass looks more comfortable than it really is.

dirt looks meaner.

and look at all that comes out of it.

shit too, for that matter.

Black:
is it a color? Is it the absence of color?
emits no wavelengths. It absorbs the entire rainbow, swallowing it whole, expunging it.
represents a new beginning: a dark room before the lights are turned on, a dark sun before the beginnings of thermonuclear activity.
licorice.
is the color we wear at funerals. Thus we associate it with death. Other cultures associate white with death, because of the white of bones.
tuxedos and limosines, patent leather shoes and Baldwin grand pianos.
stealth bombers, or helicopters.
car tires.
ink.
Black.

blue.

both dejected and renewing.
a wide open sky; a vast ocean.
of mountains and of moons.
bright and deep.
light and dark.
primary.

Shades of Orange.
Tangerines or oranges, the rind
artfully peeled with thumbnail, the rind pulp
gathers in the fold between nail and skin, the bitter
citrus smell wafts upwards.
Tracters and bulldozers, men in hardhats, bright flourescent vests of Caltrans workers. Hard work, the smell of asphalt, the deadly rush of cars, the sun.
Highlighters. Late nights spent proofreading in the office, or at school, Rogetís and Websters close at hand. Endless textbooks with lines of words; following the subtle thread of reasoning and teasing out the faults, allowing the mind to digest the mass of information and spit out a conclusion
Wet floor signs, mop buckets, mop handles. Late nights spent sweeping and mopping; being on call for the spilled sodas.
imacs. The dukes of hazard.
