Tink you, baby, Singleton 2007 Outsider Hippie Art

Tink you, Baby!
(c) Singleton 2007

Catch me if you can,
a butterfly parade in the wet morning grass,
yellow and mellow, dancing in pinstriped socks,
in the face of graffiti splashed on a rickety
an underpass,
a concrete wall....
"She was here"......

In Christmas tinsel,
spider web strings,
silvery summer rain,
the last strand, the next strand, the lost strand
of long blonde hair......

Catch me if you can,
in the words of a song,
that song, this one,
your song, mine....
Every song ever written.....

In the cusp of the moon,
Martini side up,
a barefooted shadow
three dunes away

At a red light,
that grabs you,
that forgets to turn green....
Under your tires,
gravel that spits.....
that crunches and
calls my name.....

In a popsicle melting
coffee with cream
in cowboy boots
from a Johnny Cash dream...

Catch me, if you can.....

And there will be peace, Singleton 2007 Outsider hippie art

And there will be Peace
(c) Singleton 2007

The hawk hovered
papercutting the sky
into a zillion little
pieces of
baby blue
indigo blue
forgotten blue

Into the moonlit and henna dirty

And I watched my reflection there....

On the sky to sink
a thousand 501 blues
in jagged little pieces
to the very bottom,
and fading...

And for the sun to rise....
to reach with her long dangly arms
and pluck
blue diamonds from
the earth,
quilt them together into the satin sheeted sky
of a new day,
my day,
this day.....

waiting for the winds to blow....

All I want for Christmas, Singleton Outsider Hippie Art

All I want for Christmas
(c) Singleton 2007
She whispered to
the wind,
who always listens,
to the painted fence,
a wooden confidant,
the bouganvilla,
with it's drunken
cups filled overflowing,
moonshine for the souls
of butterflies...

"All I want for Christmas,
are trinket twigs
to build this nest,
this next,
this everything to come,
and stones
to line the
skipping path,
rock and roll
me home....

All I want for Christmas
is a little
taste of peace....
a little
for my soul....

And the butterfly
by tipping his cup,
and spilling
glittered wine
in the wind.....

Superstitions, Singleton Outsider Hippie Art

(c) Singleton 2007

She knelt...
The girl with the
silver spoon,
bent and
on the sidewalk
from scavenging
food for the soul,
placed her hands,
palms down
on the cool
wet earth
to feel it's heartbeat.

And she heard
the trains,
one thousand faces in
the windows
going nowhere,
and the bottom of the ocean,
ten million miles
fairytale life
the sound of
never heard by anyone before...

She was the gift.....
