Colors Of My Life

Colors, like Mexican pottery in roadside stands,
Float through my head,
Swirling and dancing, alive
With the night's smells.
I am happy.

Chili makes me laugh out loud for no reason,
Mustard makes me dance, and
Avocado makes me sing.
And I eat of the fruit,
And the hot spicy foods,
Until I'm worn.

The pots become shards
of clay in the day's light.
