Seeing Red

by Michael Dylan Welch


First published in Raining Rengay #1, April 2023. Originally written in July of 2013. This rengay was originally meant to be part of my True Colour collection of solo rengay but somehow got misplaced or excluded.



first day of fall—

the red planet

on the evening news


the redhead in drag

eyeing me


redeye flight—

I erase the Sudoku

and start again


high up

in the red pine

my son’s balloon


the losing bullfighter

seeing red


my uncle’s new girlfriend


his classic Corvette
