April Cerise, In Memoriam
rose is pink
February 2013
they say venus in pisces
see through rose-tinted shades.

rose of pink fading to violet
pink is to rose
purple is to violet.

i will ferment
as to intoxicate
in the most humble of ways.

when late afternoon, winter light
filters through lace curtains
in an upstairs room;
the opposite of shade and cellar.

the fantasy that livens,
through the rose-tinted shades
shall i view.

before sun fades to dusk,
and the blue reverberates
in my mind.

it's where i see you.
so let's pretend
to play house;
in the most idealistic way.
