mustard yellow

i wore yellow again

as if it was going to make me feel better about myself

as if its sunflower smile would too lift my shrugging corners


i remember hating it my entire childhood

probably even up to the age of seventeen

yeah it was around then

and i remember the exact reason for it too


but then there’s a song called yellow

and mum always liked this particular shade

and brown, which i tend to wear a lot nowadays too

so i remember that not everything i do is dictated by a minute turn


and i like my yellow
