pink-think (a primer for girls of other colors)Evie Shockley
sunk in the pink of wealth: stinky in pink: rolling in bank that doesn’t account for an interest in violet. pink eye: not a medical condition, but the ability to spot a good deal. pink rose, agency’s paradox: no passive princess: a pig for power. powder-puff? rare meat? half-moons, just above the cuticles, hover over pink squares of terra firma. a pretty panther, stealing along a sax solo on pink pads, gets down with the claws. mamí says, if life hands you poverty, sell pink lemonade. yeah, mama says, and don’t forget your tutu is a bishop, and winks.
