~35 years ago I stayed up all night~so I could experience dawn in the mountains~I sat on a large stone~inhaled a snoot full of mescaline~deep breath~inhaled the sky~colorado kool-aid~harley oil & gasoline~

~Rainbows Forgotten~

~a rider from the camp came to take a leak~asked me what I was doing~he was big & hairy~writing poetry I said~he guffawed & I stood up on the rock~so I could look him in the eye~I started writing this poem with ink~put your dick away & go back to the camp~I might just poke this pen in your eye~finish my piece with your blood~I’m a full service poet~later that night he & his friends~a group known as the ghouls~took a girl who had driven my sweeper truck on the run~she should have known better~I warned her but they were lined up for the train~she was wailing louder than a whistle~I took a five gallon can of gas~filled my mouth with it~set the nozzle on fire & lit a cigar~tossed some flames in the general direction of the line~marched forward & spit across the fire of my smoke~quoting a song liked in those days I said~I am the god of hell-fire~I took that girl back & made her sleep in the truck by herself~a club sanctioned ride to some lake in nebraska~can’t remember the name~don’t matter~my younger brother drowned there~but that’s another story~

~1000 Days~
~Day 989~
~Rainbows Forgotten~

~I believe in Sunday afternoon~
~its languorous wealth of idle time~
~& guarantee of death~
~of light, of savior, of~
~the sun never going down~
~the moon never rising~
~we are fools, sycophants~
~of preconceived conditions~
~having witnessed thousands of each~
~dawns & dusks~
~not a single one is the same~
~their differences a matter of interpretation~
~undeniable in the sameness they share~
~what mirrors of heaven~
~celestial kaleidoscopes~
~did I say we tend to be fools & sycophants~
~regarding such slated events~
~I’ll cop to that regarding myself~
~the very light of dawn & dusk~
~suggests an aura of gods
~& who needs them when you have that~

Thanks, Steve. I have to create art for the remaining 987 pieces. I am hopelessly lost & found well in the process:-)

Dark & disturbing, a smile teases my lips, the intimation that I have style. There it is, I'm smiling.
Thanks, folks!
