Burgundy is…

High school teams going for gold (again); your best friend
from childhood’s favorite shade, no matter how much you insist
that green that purple are superior; Wine-drunk friends watching
movies with you; Monday morning come (again)
and you’re not prepared; an assignment due
in one hour (again) and you’ve only just remembered it, only
just began; stained carpet staring up at you while you’re told
(again) how you shouldn’t be this way, how
you need to have more confidence, more assuredness in yourself,
how if your parent won’t tell you the truth, who will,
how you’re much too sensitive (again) too emotional.
