White Minus Green (Poem Minus A)

Pink light is pure composition, multiplication (ignore minus green)
Just one step off from white –
God’s-violin-strings white.
Yogurt-smoothie white.
Guiding-phone-light white.
Seriously-not-me white.
Pink is one step down from rose red,
Just a guiding light with a hole where green used to be,
No chlorophyll veins pumping in my chest.
Our perceptions don’t compute white minus green.
There is no pink, pink isn’t that lovely red.
Do you see my flickering pinkish glow is just a nongreen void in my chest?
