“Banned and lionized by drunken cactuses,
eternally sanguine in black and white, raw like the majestic sex on her ruby red deaths woman mouth, silver-coated terror in her eyes.”
― Laura Gentile,
optimistic or positive, especially in an apparently bad or difficult situation.
reddish; blood red
“blood-red,” late 14c. (late 12c. as a surname), from Old French sanguin (fem. sanguine), from Latin sanguineus “of blood,” also “bloody, bloodthirsty,” from sanguis (genitive sanguinis) “blood” (see sanguinary). Meaning “cheerful, hopeful, confident” first attested c. 1500, because these qualities were thought in old medicine to spring from an excess of blood as one of the four humors. Also in Middle English as a noun, “type of red cloth” (early 14c.).
