Pink and Blue

I grew up pink
Pink blankets swaddled me in the hospital
I rode a pink tricycle
And played with pink dolls
I wore pink dresses in a pink house
And when I stopped being little you still wanted pink
I tried red
I tried blood rubies filling wine glasses
I tried red velvet with white lace
But I知 not red
And you wanted at least red
So I tried purple
Cloaked in grapes and the colors of royalty
Wore an amethyst crown
Let myself be swallowed in grape juice and plums
But I wasn稚 purple
And yet you still pulled me to pink
But I知 blue
I知 the night and summer sky
I知 blue jays and baby blankets
I知 royal blue that you can get lost in
And denim after to much wear
I知 the ocean after a storm
And the shade of larkspur
And as I look back on it I see something
I never was pink
Nor Red
Nor Purple
I am blue
And when you wake up to fresh snow and the smell of rain
Remember your son
That made blue in a pink body
