Color Theory

when skin is orange

and heart is black

hiding in the shades

of ol’ glory

last i knews

them reds 


and blues

make a muted 

kind of purple

that pleases

the eye

of many

crayon artists 

who prefer

a wide variety 

and the specialties

that are offered

never once

in a life entire

did crayola 

name a color
