in moosig verkappten schädeln – Stimmenrausch 2014-10-13

Perversity

That day I wore a red gown
Because I could not hide
The warming flame in me – But you
Thought scarlet meant my pride.

And so I wore a black gown,
To prove my humbleness:
But you instead took black to be
A sign of bitterness.

I dare not wear a white gown
My honesty to show:
You’d take it for a shroud, no doubt
Uncomforting as snow.
