New Poem: Rainbow Coat

Sometimes the attention is not that flattering.

Rainbow Coat

Wear crazy
because it is in vogue
wear crazy
because you heard it is not

Wild and unpredictable
in the same old patterns
show us how primal you can be
show how you can just cut loose

Because you have no idea
what the real thing is
the doubt
the pain
the embarrassment
that comes with being afraid
of your own mind

We are touched by the angels
at least that is what we are told
but no one
wants to wear
the genuine article
