Cut From The Same Shade

Copper glimmers just like it’s element
Only those who dare and possess Gollum- like qualities
Dare retrieve this rare gem
More often she’s left on the shelf

Auburn is the dark mistress of the coiffure
Mysterious, neither red nor brown
Yet still with shimmering streaks of sunlight
Her unknowns dangerous

Orange is much too bright
She doesn’t blend in, difficult to hide
Unpredictable, a glorious shade of lunacy
The fire straight from the dragon’s belly

Whereas strawberry is the tip of the flame
The spark that catches before
The full ferocious velocity of its sisters

The bit that devours every scrap.
