Take the Rainbow (Grey Drains a Day)

it’d be dim of me to deny shadows
tailing rainbow’s bold

though if you wanna try, i’m sure you can
find bite marks in any night, on any
headlight bashed loose any
drive-home day,

all straight lines walked and all the
wild turkeys talked with the
working dead, they say-

all work , no say ’til we’re too shriveled
and pale to care for and water love’ s leaves
or dare play to song’s softer

i’ll just keep drummin’ thumbs
on a grateful skull ’til all
these rainbows taste
less grey.
