found poem from the J. Peterman Company Catalog
Years of pink testing
by Dr. Alex Schauss
who gets paid to do such things
have proved fifteen minutes
of exposure to pink
calms anxiety and crankiness
as effectively as a tranquilizer.
I'm not surprised.
Pink is red
without the bared, sharp teeth
warm and sensuous
but unthreatening.
Pink is Rubens and Renoir
and Cupid coming into view
any minute now.
Bring pink power
on special occasions
for ones you want to make special.
Apply it wisely.
