Nobody wears pink anymore

It must be Winter…

Autumn’s leaves

bright golds reds oranges, greens

brown paste now.

Autumn’s leaves

forming a brown paste on the sidewalk

in the gutters

Not only Nature’s palette is running short:

Over 2o colourful Tshirts, a Hawaiian shirt, too!

have to hide them

under 1 0f

3 jackets now

army green one, brown one, or  black one?

4 if you count the red one I never wear

(sorry Mum)

Nobody wears pink anymore.

Gotta blend in with the grey and leaf-paste.

Canadian Classics taste different now somehow

Mother Earthlungs upside-down stark-naked

holding breath for the Spring to spring –

when they can start mixing

the next batch of paste

People will stop wearing pink then, too –

When the next paste is ready.

Walking

nose Running

Hands avoiding the air

Thinkin’ ’bout people I know

one in particular

ipod can’t get any louder

feel okay – i like the grey

steam plumes smoke stacks

like imaginary fires

a warm thought?

or post-apocalyptic imagery

Ancient buildings lit hauntingly

spearpoint fences iced

graveyard stone says SNOW

walk around in the foggy dawns

the blowing rain

the snow

amazed.

I sing.

Whistle past the cemetery….

where I’m from you can wear pink all year round, if you want to

Sometimes so fucking passionately happy

sometimes so fucking disconsolately sad. sometimes

nowhere inbetween

where I’m from you can wear pink all year round, if you want

so I go get a coconut

on the way home

kick the paste and sing

tell the Earthlungs

“SEE Y’IN SPRING!

Thanks for the nice air all Summer..

Very fresh, thank you”.

Rattle the keys, unsheathe the feet, crank the heat

Hack into that coco

Hawaiian shirt and shorts

from the depths of the pile.

Her Budgie is chirping

straw’s in the coco now

sweet taste of Summer

ah little Summer-capsule!

within it hides all the tropics and suntanned people

White sand instead of snow

In there’s Me-hico

My homeland, too…

Familiar scene memory TV…

Ahhh…

I like Winter.

it’s cozy.

still call Summer “home”, though…
