Just Maybe, Singleton 2008, Outsider Hippie Art

Now featured at
Cafe Press....
Peace, love, maybe

He flittered down,
in his patent leather suit,
black and yellow pin-striped,
talking to my soul....
strutting on the fence line
daring me to follow him,
chase him,
dance with him....
the butterfly with zebra lines
and tell-tale wings....

But I didn't.

And he flew away.....
The elusive dream wrapped temptress.

Bathwater days turned cold and
and nights grew hour by
lonely hour longer
until I knew...

Until I danced to patent leather
the tribal sound of
"Come hither",
primal background noise
pushing me on...

Until I crossed the fenceline.....

And he whispered
through the haze,
"I'm so glad you came to get me..."

Behind the butterfly, Singleton 2008 , Outsider Hippie Art

Behind the Butterfly
(c) Singleton 2008

"You hide there,
behind your peace~love
rattling change-the-world coins
in your hand-me-down levis,
inviting chaos
in through
your kitchen
and asking
it in for tea"

I whisper
from behind
veiled wings...
rattling found trinkets
for the sake of good luck,
and say
"I'll take that as a compliment"...

Hello, Singleton 2008 Hippie Outsider Art

(c) Singleton 2008

It's a red day,
a bar~room coaster day,
accidently scribbled on,
"Hello, it's me"....

Forever was first
in line
and last to take
the chance
and just in case
I forgot to tell you,
even when I'm gone,
forever is a memory,
tripped over,
leaned over,
hidden in the second dresser drawer,

Say the words....

I've known you forever, Singleton 2008 outsider hippie art

I've known you forever
(C) Singleton 2008
Private Collection

I met an angel
by fate
or happenchance.
sitting out a dance
on the sidewalk of these pages,
and he whispered
to my soul,
in his raspy
yesterday voice,
with old words
in an old language,
the one word I've
waited to hear.....

And I knew then,
what I had to whisper back.......
