Mauve and Orange

Life is mauve, I am orange.

Mauve and Orange. Mark  Rothko. 1961.

Mauve and Orange. Mark Rothko. 1961.

Incandescence’, by William.

Hick, hack, hock,
Rinky tinky on purple grass,
Shafts of light, hob-nail boots,
Tramping down the bamboo,
That grows upwards, downwards, sideways,
Into the Concrete Cosmos,
Life is mauve,
I am orange,
Hick, hack, hock.

From Tony Hancock’s “The Poetry Society”.
