Rainbow Colored Camouflage

"I hate it."
"But it's the latest fashion," she bubbled.
"In this outfit you will fit in."

Great.
Rainbow colored camouflage.
A bag of skittles in a sea of clown barf.

"Skittles,"
She giggles
"I like to eat the red ones, and then the blue."

I bet you do.
Not for me, thank you.

I will remain myself,
And fade into the light.
