I Could Do With More Pink

The winter sky is Battleship
Gray, a featureless dome.

Women are wearing pink
pussy hats atop all colors

and textures of hair. And
why shouldn’t they? Men

brandish penises – hand
guns, revolvers, six-shooters

(don’t they wish!)
A pink crocheted cap

never killed anyone
(the hat, not the needles.)

I could do with more pink
in my life, yes indeed.
