Colour I

Living Coral

 

Pantone has picked living coral

colour of the new year

a saturated orange base

with a golden undertone

radiate the next 300 days

with its humanizing glaze

uplifting, versatile

life-affirming face

 

Yayoi Kusama wins the solo

most instagrammed

artist of the year

gathered infinity

eternity

in big, mirrored rooms

the colour of her hair

brighter than living coral

 

On the last day of the year

someone said

movies aren't moving at all

they are still pictures

selfies aren't selves at all

they are public images

pick a colour for social media

living coral or feverish yellow
