Masks (poem and painting)

Masks
mixed media on paper
12″x18″

pink is a pretentious color

not bright or passionate or splashy like red

pink is a frivolous color

not mysterious or deep or rich like purple

pink is a playful color

not serious or intent or thoughtful like indigo

pink is a wanton color

not quiet or peaceful or calm like blue

pink is a pallid color

not vivid or living or fertile like green

pink is a deceptive color

not clear or truthful or honest like yellow

pink is a mask that people wear

a deception some like but others can’t bear
