Color Poem #59

it is not the purple of grapes
not the purple of a purpley
octopus in a children’s story
not the purple of violets or
wisteria or eggplant or ink

it is the purple of a dream
a purple born in the mind
of a girl about to turn eight
when she sees herself as
she herself has decided to be
