2007 - Fall - The Rainy Day Entry

How to Make a Rainbow - 1. How to Make a Rainbow

Start with crimson.
An angered declaration
shouting, "Bleed us, burn us,
we will still be here,
and one day we will be equals."

Orange is a bittersweet line,
pill bottles by the dozen,
the tang of condoms
and that awful sunrise
that ended night too soon.

Next is Apprehension Yellow.
The color of missed chance bile,
and letters lost to time.
Through these, far far
too many still view the world.

Sing now of emerald envy
towards those that need not
hide in shadows. Funny thing,
its also the money we don't spend
on children denied or forsaken.

Blue, at least, is universal.
Hope, fidelity, faith,
are rare gifts seldom seen by anyone.
But it is in pursuit of these principles,
that give rise our battle cries.

Pride is lavender. Old ladies and old queens,
both wear it to state,
"You might think me nothing more
than a dried up raisin dreamer.
But you know what?
The bastards haven't brought me down yet."

Look now on this rainbow.
Each color is a lesson,
standing for some sacrifice.
So bring on your rain, pain
and everything else you've got.
I think we both know now,
how this rainfall's going to end.
