Oluseyi Oluseun

(Nigeria)

Red


Red the colour of blood
the symbol of life
Red the colour of danger
the symbol of death

Red the colour of roses
the symbol of beauty
Red the colour of lovers
the symbol of unity

Red the colour of tomato
the symbol of good health
Red the colour of hot fire
the symbol of burning desire

Red the colour of power
the symbol of energy
Red the colour of wine
the symbol of celebration

Red the primary colour
the symbol of production
Red the colour of carpet
the symbol of honour

Red the colour of card
the symbol of eviction
Red the colour an account
the symbol of emptiness

Red the colour of an alert
the symbol of readiness

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
