You Will Not Be This Quick to Redden Forever


Marvin Bell

Being red is the color of a white sun where it lingers
on an arm. Color of time lost in sparks, of space lost
inside dance. Red of walks by the railroad in the flush
of youth, while our steps released the squeaks
of shoots reaching for the light. Scarlet of sin, crimson
of fresh blood, ruby and garnet of the jewel bed,
early sunshine, vestiges of the late sun as it turns
green and disappears. Be calm. Do not give in
to the rabid red throat of age. In a red world, imprint
the valentine and blush of romance for the dark.
It has come. You will not be this quick to redden
forever. You will be green again, again and again.


  1. Yes, exactly.

    It will be all your fault when the crackers take over, because you didn't clap loudly enough for President Drone Strike's new clothes.

  2. From "How To Start a Blog in 2012"--"I particularly like keyword analysis, because this can give you some immediate insights into the type of words people use to find your content. Write more with those keywords in mind." Ha!

    If you really want to drive up the hits, stick with the classics, like "Britney Spears Shaved Pussy" and "Ken Mehlman Totally Nude Gay Sex Tape Sucking Cock"

  3. Maybe I should start a blog. I've been thinking about it for awhile now. Think I could get anyone to read it?

    Thanks for the helpful hint zencomix!

  4. Dammit, I'm totally doing it wrong. At least I've been grandfathered in to the suck.

    What's wrong with your design? Too much 'ooh, shiny object' as is, getoffmylawn.
