Orange we smart

Boi Ach and guest-babe Elusyve Jewell, united by a common love

Have you guys ever listened to Ken Nordine's album Colors? My husband played it for me once and I was hooked. He's got a song about Orange, and I'm damned if I can find any of the lyrics online. But if I could, they'd be all about who Orange is...a thirsty color, happy and cheerful and the type to brighten anyone's day. Unless Orange comes in Sepia, Orange's melancholy shade... Okay. Ken Nordine did it better than I can, but the sentiment is there: Orange is a synaesthete's delight, gold or the sun or a melting creamsickle or the faded print of an old photograph...

Lucky for me Elusyve quite agrees, and here we are posing in our orange garb. I put on my boy avatar just for her, and together we are formidably orange! Totally the new black! You'll see this post in stereo today. Elusyve is also writing about it (post here), because I find it fascinating when the same event is written from two different perspectives...

had to pass along this poem written by Andrijah Beardmore, for someone who wanted a poem about their favorite orange shirt:


The muse surrounds me
Envelops me
A single color
Becoming my existence
Highlighting moments of serenity
Illuminating my days
From a simple fruit that bares the same name
To the blinding sun high in the sky
Buried deep within the clay
That holds us to this place
A favorite shirt worn down to nothing
I love the smell of it
The essence of life
Found within its hue
Brings the likeness that you love
Orange is the color of source
But what it holds in me
A smile not so easy removed
I want of it more
