The Color of Your Skin


There is something about it

I cannot name.

I cannot define it in/with words.

brown does not do justice to it

just as white does not to light,

or black to night.

fair, like dark,

too general to pique

any interest

in something so unique.

If only

your skin were to be perforated into parts

you would be a rainbow

but just as only human eyes have

the capacity to see one,

do not be surprised

if no one else

but I

can see the rainbow

beneath your beautiful skin!
