the most unpopular crayon
the color my wedding dress was not
the sum of all the colors of light
and the absence of any pigment
a Beatles album and a Carroll rabbit
52 of 88 keys on a piano
the color of my blank sheet of paper
void of creative ideas.
white color white collar
the white elephant of a White House
with its little white lies
whitewashing the scandals
that stain our country.
whites always stay separate from darks
in the Laundromat of humanity
white trash, white eyes,
white coat, white ties . . .
the last color we see
when we throw up our white flag
against the darkness
of this world.
