I met a friend online
and she was done up all in purple
from bespoke blouse to lipstick

Why the palette girl

November is family violence prevention month don’t you know

And what’s the purple mean

I guess something to do with bruises 

But if there is no bruise?

What’s your point?

What if you see nothing?

Well, its not really about

… maybe its about survival, resilience, y’know

Survival has a colour? Who picked it?

Well, what colour would you pick?

Nothing. No colour you could wear. Nothing anyone could ever see.
