Pink Chapstick


PINK CHAPSTICK

Everything was
pink.

The kitchenware,even
the microwave and coffee maker,
my sister's signature color,
pink.

Her color choice expanded to
clothes, nightgowns, jewelry,
bedding, phone, all
pink.

The dolls wore pink
exclusively, the walls were
hung with themes of
pink.

I kept Chapstick
from her estate, stashed
in all of my necessary places,
all pink-tubed.

My sister has been gone
one year, the Chapstick
dwindles; I wear her sunglasses,
pink-lenses, of course, and think of her.
