Grey Into Purple

Grey into purple
turns yellow in the sunset
grey into purple
is shadowy and mysterious
grey into purple
is the cat that walks by itself
grey into purple
once saved the world with a rubber band
grey into purple
doesn’t know what it’s doing
but don’t tell anyone

It Is Not the Purple One

You have chosen the wrong one again
yet refuse to admit it

I am so frustrated
with the bad puddings you make

That dog is staring at us
with eyes the colour of amber

The bridge looms nearer
as the wall stops swaying

I found a peach
in the arms of a fellow ruffian

Her mother’s physician
is not addicted to strawberries

At the end of the night
the crow will abscond with the menu

My first thought is
there is a puppy inside you

Sock

O sock
why do you taunt me
from your place
on top of a book
on top of my couch?
In fact
why are you there at all?
Where did you come from
and where is the second sock
that presumably goes with you?
I didn’t even realise
I had any purple socks at all
and don’t remember wearing you recently.
Is there something sinister about you
O sock?

Purple

How wicked
cruel
and unexpected
is the colour purple
watch it
plotting
scheming
to overthrow everything
everything we have worked for
everything we have yearned for
everything in our buckets
for it claims our buckets
and keeps them forever
O wicked purple
spawn of demons
imbued
with the power
of opera tickets

Pinkness

Pinkness
is not greenness
though it can sometimes
be similar to purpleness
if purpleness
is redness
with blueness added
which is not really the same thing as pinkness
now that I think of it
but pinkness
is nothing like blueness
or so claims the Voice of Hegemony
so BURN DOWN THE TOY AISLES
BURN DOWN THE TOY AISLES
BURN DOWN THE TOY AISLES
and buy yourself a pony.
