Linda King
Lady in Red


under no circumstances
should you choose
the red dress

a red dress
will always come undone
hit the ground and shatter

wayward shards
will shred your feet
cause you to lose your foothold

blue is better
more obedient    submissive
the colour of water

just don’t mistake it
for hope
