My Take

DiVoran Lites


Painting by DiVoran Lites



I like black, it goes with everything,

Makes me look pale and ethereal

Don’t like my coffee black, though.


Mother hated black because…

She had to sew a slew of tiny black buttons

On her Mother’s funeral dress.


Red was out for Mother, too,

Especially for church.

It was the color for floozies


I wear red to church

I wear black to church

It goes with everything.


I like to wear white.

I had a white nylon uniform when I

Worked in the beauty salon.


I washed it every night.

When I was pregnant I wore a halter

So my shoulders could help carry.


Black is the color of sleep

White is the all-color-ness of purity

Red is the color of our blood

Christ’s blood, too.
