It’s a bit gray in my escape.
I’ve hung bright colored curtains,
but these walls are wrong.
The paint was supposed
to have a touch of pearl,
you know “jewelry on drab,”
but it hits with something
more like incarceration.
I should paint the walls red,
make it feel like I’m inside a heart.
It would be a nice contrast
to the teeth marks I can leave with my tongue.
Oh well, butterflies can’t always choose
the right shade for their cocoons,but they can pick the attitude for a new set of wings.
