Today, I dyed my hair red.
I wanted to feel powerful,
to feel the intensity of the color within my body
pulsating outward; without.
A deeper sense of passion.
An emerging desire.
I’d like to be reminded that my blood is in fact-
red; screaming to be noticed.
In revolution to be heard.
Today, someone blew the embers in my heart
and I can feel my blood burning
Like a fire that knows how to burn
Set my heart on it
Set my heart on fire…
(Like a fire that knows how to burn-
in red…always in red…)
