Touching Rainbows...


"Touching Rainbows..."

Where ya been chile?...
The 'hawk's' been runnin' free
leavin' I-cycles to stem the flows
of smiles
with tears
and years...
and its all 'bout whats been
and goin' on
and down
and through
an roun'...
where ya been chile?

Dads - well they up n' quit
- ya know -
can't take the dreamin' anymore
and starin'
at closin' doors
the floors
the damn walls -
tighter and tighter
and tighter
Where ya been chile?

Mamas? - moms 'r still the same,
they just change
- names -
to fit the seens -
ya know what I mean?
Lot of words pass lips -
past slips
that can't be forgot
and some never forget
and some manage to
- forget to forgive -
ya know?
Where ya been chile?

Did YOU forget -
ass-fault and asphalt
ain't always black
or white,
and soft concrete ribbons
still stretch and stretch
and beckon
yet the 'taste' always remains...
ahead and behind -
and nights? - just days and days
of dif' light...
waitin' -
yet movin' on
and outside
goin' where there's green to turn brown
as ya reach...
and the dust thickens
and thickens.
Where ya been chile?

Times allusions
- illusions -
circlin' and circlin' -
while high
and low
are all the same - ya know
just places the angels fear
and places the devil won't go
- been there
am there
- just so ya know.
So where YOU been chile?
