red::a five-minute friday post

i wore a coca-cola sweatshirt
and a bright and shiny dress.

i wore a sweetheart-collared t-shirt
and a cozy, comfy fleece.

all in bright, cherry red
cool, not warm, on the color wheel
and they all made me feel
like a million bucks.

some people steer away from red
but me
like a bug to a light in the night.

and here i sit
past the hours of the red-eye

for another
who makes me feel like a million bucks
a friend
a sister.

flying into the morning sky
with her back to the glowing
red sky
ah, yes.
