Tink you, baby, Singleton 2007 Outsider Hippie Art

Tink you, Baby!
(c) Singleton 2007
SOLD

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
fence,
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.....

You will never be caught...

Your words dance in to my soul today...

I have an afternoon 'off' today my friend... which in my world...spells an afternoon where i open my wings a little and jump from the safety of that old and sturdy branch... for freedoms sake...

Here's to flying, to freedom, to the winged life...

and of course...

to you! Clink! Tink!

Love, M
