Happy Little Tricks

By Scott Thomas Outlar

Happy Little Tricks

It's not just a shade of red
glowing in the windows

we sold this whole world out
to blue light specials
and degeneration
offered dirt cheap

and some were green with envy
while others cowered yellow in fear

but all this time
there has been
a white
at the heart
of darkness

Excuse me as I bathe in the palette
and smear my flesh with passion's many hues
