The Colour Series (Part 8): Pink

God: (observing as the painter works) A third of him fears me amidst confessions of love. A third of him aches to conquer me. And throughout the year, the rest of his hims take bets on which of the first two will win – the victor reigning apparent on light cinabrese walls.

All the while, the book of eternal law silently wields an overwhelming scepter over his caged soul.

PS: Light cinabrese was a pinkish pigment used in Renaissance paintings. That fact inspired this poem.
