Black and white.

“Black and white ain’t no color” they said. “Be a girl, choose bright colors”
And it all confuses me, because in my mind, in some house I am yet to move in, I have already decorated it with utensils, curtains, pouffe, chairs all with a touch of black and white. He loves red, I know that too well, I have one of his red hoodies, so I know. It looks good on him, and when I ask him, he says brown is his favorite color, the color of my skin, and it makes me blush for a moment there. But then I deadpan him, I’m not brown, I’m light skinned. I’ve told him so every now and then. And at other times, he will say I am white just to get on my nerves, and it makes me smile. After all, white is the other half of the color I love.

  1. So short and so full at one and the same time.
    “And at other times, he will say I am white just to get on my nerves, and it makes me smile. After all, white is the other half of the color I love.” Yes! Muscular language with grace. Such grace. Grace, like strong and confident enough to be caring and gentle, grace.
