Pink Stains

By Brynn Simon

Was it an accident

or was it done forcefully?

Stains of pink and red

splashed and bathed

on the cotton fabric

soaked through

to the other side;

it looks pretty

as if done naturally

by fate.

There’s parts

where both colors blend

I wish I could bathe in

that color.

And I wish I could have a shirt like that too.

A shirt like Eda’s.
