I bled on my pink sheets today
The pink ones from Ross
Or was it Marshall’s?

They are a very pretty,
pretty shade of pink–
Not blush, not bashful
Not rose or mauve
Not cotton candy
Nor carnation

They are the perfect,
perfect pink
for my bed

But now they are red
because I have bled

Soon, they’ll be brown.

These pink sheets
are my New Year’s sheets.
I gifted them to myself.

To start the year fresh.

New sheets
Clean sheets
Fresh sheets

Fresh year
Clean year
New year

These pink sheets
My lovely pink sheets

I bled on them today.
