Orange by Raven Murzinski

A poem of differences.

Tarah loved yellow,

the bright yellow of the sun

the stars and bumblebees.

She would paste pictures

of gaudy hues on our wall.

But I? Nary a kind thought

for the tacky colour.

It lit a fire in my soul.

And every poster she posted,

I would tear down with speed.

Year after year we fought,

on paint, on clothes,

garden flowers and candles,

Writing over each other’s ink.

On the day of our divorce,
I had not much to say.

She wore a yellow dress.

I thought she looked better in red

guess it’s too damn hard to make orange.

10 Reasons Coffee Is The Best In Honor Of National Coffee Day

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
