Graffiti on the dawn

By
I
Gonna get my living on
Graffiti on the dawn
Although I’ve never drawn
Love
And beautiful women before
There is always a first
Coerced into everything
But the unrehearsed
Lines of true living
Like how the earth made love to the sky
And that’s where you and i
Come from
we arrived
warriors of the steel drum
Never to ask how come
we arrived
this way
I
Gonna get my living on
Graffiti on the dawn
Though the sun has undergone
The scissors
The amber blade
Laying sunshine in concave graves
Right next to those
I
Couldn’t
Save
Who numbered the days between cafes and the charcoal grays
Of passing away
Nicely
Where precisely
At dawn
I drew your picture although I’ve never drawn
As a symbol of your carrying on
Now
If only
I
Could get my living on.
