• The Box 69: GOLD

    Color: Gold
    Feb. 22, 1998
    Song: "Golden" Jill Scott

    Scraping sides of a gold cylinder in the light’s shadow
    is how my body spends eternity.
    I am among colorful shards of glass
    in a glorious kaleidoscope.
    My children will forever look inside
    and see me
    shining brilliantly in the sun’s shine.
    Held in both hands
    cared for with love
    and admiration
    and wonder.
    I never repeat my form.
    A new design with every turn
    to amaze the eye
    and feed the will.
    This is my life long after I’m gone.

    The little girl picks up the kaleidoscope.
    Turns the tubes.
    The visions of my life
    in her eyes
    are of her own self
    being reinvented
    before it starts.
    She looks into her own life through a toy.
    A toy of a brilliant design.
    The toy that contains her legacy.
    The ashes that contain all the colors of the universe.
    The universe contains her brilliance…
