i should really hang my posters

my walls are white
a tooth-filled jar white
not a good bright white
or a dim light white
not a pretty moonlight white
but a muddled night white.
at least it’s not an alt-right white
that’s the “not all right” white.
i wish they were a starlight white–
a star bright white
but i’ll stare at this strange off-white
and think about how it’s rather far-off white

until i hang my posters
