Colors

In elementary school I learned my primary colors,

Yet black and white were never a part of this list,

But our society revolves around these colors.

Black and white are just two more categories.

A systematic way to create sectionalized territories.

A way to reduce humans to colors that were never primary

All while making other colors appear secondary.

The Parrot, The Monkey, and The Mirror

Everyday Parrot would fly down from his tree to visit the massive mirror that remained underneath it. Today was no different. He woke up, groomed his feathers and swerved down to the mirror. However, to his surprise, a monkey was examining the mirror. Frustrated, Parrot flew faster to confront the scoundrel, for the mirror clearly belonged to Parrot. No one else in the jungle ever came to look at it.
