Bamboo Colors

The curtains are earth- colors that drape over edges of Summers, hot as desert sands rippling malt hues.Oil paints blended into royalty.. of candied Autumn. Harvesting yolk yellow moons with cruer tints- birth. Ocifatory senses: tea in afternoon; pig slop; manure. Citrus oranges, clasped by orchard trees, ripe. Petals the colors of sunsets. Horse hair, rich browns. Cows, their vanilla with oreo; mauve skin, the pig. Cedar planks that shelter, raise a family... of cats. Rodent feats.
