Poem from The Color Series: Red

 

Takes two to start a fire,
Or rage a bloody war.
With kindling for desire
And wavelengths to explore.

There is that threat of danger
In every call to arms,
As passion can breed anger
And red sounds all alarms.

Still the energy of Nymphs
And Satyrs dressed as gods
Evokes a sacred glimpse
Into why we’re all at odds.

For Life and Death flow aroused
As battle trumpets sound.
Find the lock where sex is housed,
To see how we are bound.
