still life with lemons

you're real beautiful inside, don't you know?
all sorts of colors.
there's always new ones to find
& it can be a real adventure to really remember who you are again.
what makes you plum purple and what makes you lemon zest yellow?
what turns your heart into byzantine blue
or your eyes mint green?

and won't it be exciting, one day, to share all those things you did
and all those things you were and loved and learned
with somebody new?
and you can tell them about the time you were light blue like the lines on a china plate
and when you discovered you had all sorts of fiery red in you.

and won't it be beautiful,
because all a sudden,
i think,
together you'll make all sorts of new colors.
