Purple Haze

Purple and mauve
And claret and plum,
Lavender, lilac and carpenter’s thumb,
Indigo, violet, ultramarine,
Fuchsia, magenta and burgundy-bean.
Aubergine, sprouting and blueberry juice –
Much redder than cyan and bluer than puce.

The red and the blue,
And the blue and the red,
And the mix of the two
On the wall or the thread.
Emperors, sportsmen and hippies have shown
That neither these primes is enough on its own.
It’s cool and it’s passionate, hip and genteel –
Much bluer than scarlet and redder than steel.
