No Red Poem

                     By David Michael Jackson
NO RED

used up all the paint


no red


damn


can't paint


no red


no rose, no


apples, no


red limozines


running through the night taking


queens to kings


no red for the joker's cap


no red for her lips she might as well 

be


dead


no red


and the yellow's running low


for the sunrise


for the little lady's hat


so little time so little yellow


and no 





red
