the new kale, a poem
you’d like to think
that her dreams
were very nice,
soft, smooth edges spanning the length
inbetween the rounded corners
of a familiar shape.
plastic covers on the electrical sockets, too.
clear, flexible 3 prong insert
grossly overlooked and transparent
against a painters pallete
of the 2017 color trends.
last year: peach, pineapple
the year before that: kale
the use of food as names
run congruent with the soup du jour.
next years will be an off-white,
we call it cauliflower.
cauliflower is the new kale.
and i will take neither in the form of soup.
plastic pillow covers creek though-
and clash. and the zipper breaks
primrose yellow pillow is practically
bursting out at the seam
giving it some attitude,
‘rough around the edges’
a much unseen disheveled display,
even for a seat cushion.
the dazzling blue,
blurring into the primrose yella pilla,
all mixed in front of that cadillac white
they brood the hazy purple
that has been named,
Please note that:
your dreams show no evidence
that the color ‘radiant orchid’,
had made its way in
to that place i found in your dreams
when you were surfing your brain waves
and i was surfing your couch
