Apparition blue in a worn out
lifejacket crossing imaginary jungle
scenes, like strange coyote dreams
lumbering onward, shades of Robert
Zimmerman over by the bleachers,
he's Dylan now, and doing fine, but
further down the light bulb bursts,
crash, bang, slam, it's all glass
and timid aftermaths forever man.
Tweed condolences, and apple cores
by the sink simmering in moonlight
so pink that eternity cries darling,
dear, where have the hot hours gone.
Starving for cordial affirmations
the lily wilts by the basement stairs.
A little yellow left in this artificial
light. Minnesota to the Village,
will the motive reach the wind.
