PURPLE THE LILYWHITE

Purple the lilywhite Scot on the stage.
He is understudied like some knight’s page.
Purple him with the fluorescent light.
We know enough of its cost came from his wage.

Verily, the stamen pops more than the petal,
a signifier for attraction. It is settled
with a look-at-me complex
and it is almost always erect.

Time to protect his ego, go.
But, I don’t though.
I am much more interested in where he will go
when he’s sandwiched between the orchid singer and the door
like some hot greenhouse whore.
