(Tan) [feat. Scott Okamoto]

from Kaleidoscope by Monk Turner



Tan is the future, man
When one ponders the question of
Whether Tan is half brown or half white,
As in the proverbial glass being half full or half empty.
Tan doesn’t care which it is.
It only knows that it is what we will all be
(In five or six generations.)
But Tan isn’t coming for you like the Terminator.
Call it mocha if it helps.
Café au Lait or dulce de leche.
From you.
To me.
Tan is just what we will be.
