Sun and Moon duet;

 a visual symphony.

Night will be here soon.

The sun’s bright light absorbed by

the glow of a honeyed moon.

Departing Sun

her departing Son

left no forwarding address

her wounded heart cried

oh, departing Sun

of her please take no recess

 warmth and light provide

I’m white

Super white

This is not a statement of identity

This has nothing to do with Nationality

I’m not proudly proclaiming to be Caucasian

I’m stating a fact; I’m white

Like “blinded by the light” kinda white

As much as I love nature…the sun is not my friend

I burn

Not that cute,  becoming, pink flush I’ve seen on others

No, no not me…I burn

Red as a lobster, a creepy lobster with scalded, blistered flesh

I  know people who purposely get a sunburn that then turn quite nicely into a glowing tan

HA! Not me…

I’m white

I burn

I peel

Then guess what? White again!

“Wanna go to the beach?”

Sure…at night

or else pass the SPF 5000!
