CHAMPAGNE

is not a color

unless you’re a car salesman or a bride-to-be

pale yellow-y orange

“it’s light brown, ain’t it?”

the color of hose (when we still wore pantyhose)

Sahara Rose

white tea

if a horse has a champagne gene then

it will truly be a horse of a different color

bubbles flee the flute

like that supernova exploding into song
