She wanted red rubber boots with white swirls. She wanted a rain coat that was violet, with small flowers scattered across it. She wanted an umbrella that, when open, had birds flying and singing.
She imagined how she would look among the dark coats with hoods, and black rubber boots. She would be the first bright yellow flower in spring. She would be the first brilliantly coloured leaf in fall. She would be the first delicate lacy snow flake.
She imagined a world with colours other than on the scale of deepest black to lightest gray. What if everyone had patterned rubber boots? What if every one had a coloured rain coat? What if everyone had an umbrella with birds, flowers, animals?
But that would be revolution. Was she ready to agitate for it?
