I Only Like It Hot


Each time I see the color pink

I blink to clear my eyes

because that hue before me

makes me want to immunize


It’s not that I hate girly things

assigned to that one color

it’s just that if I owned that tint

my closet, it would holler


But any other color always

 makes my eyes squint smiles

I wear them any time or place

with flair, in every style


There is one way that’s quite okay

(and nothing is for naught)

in nature pink that sizzles

is the one that I call “hot.”
