Happy New Year! First Poem for 2021


I don’t really


the color you want

me to

I bleed green

on days 

I believe in aliens

and I bleed blue

only when

the day is gray

and besieged in a

storm of violence

I bleed what

I want to

I only bleed red

to please you

on most days 

I bleed

in rainbows 

as dreams 

do come true

I only bleed red 

if I have to.
