RED

Horses gallop furiously,
shadows of clouds on mountains show their shape
forming lines that cannot be broken easily
bowing to leaders with respect
as hero’s walk alone on a narrow path
rulers sit on thrones where they cannot be touched.

Dripping water drops repeatedly from the sky,
enemies fight with guns
instead of practicing swordplay,
finding out the strength between one another
as the music of sorrow and suffering play in the background
strings of chords are broken.

Paint from a symbolizing color is inked on canvasses
showing red
for blood, for power, for politics, for fire
more recognizable than the heat of the sun
for lips, for dress, for war
wearing to be noticed.
