You’ll look silly as a clown that mimes…

Vapor trails

see that small, white streak
looks like a shooting star?
now that’s sadness
look at that long, wide, colorful trail
that’s melancholy, baby!
don’t get them confused
one has long staying power
the other disappears as quickly as it arrives
don’t bring in some plastic offering
artists don’t paint with jive
that’s their guts spilled out on canvas
you look at with your cocked head
say what you want as you pound out dollars
on that keyboard connected to the NY Times
but don’t say Vincent never loved you
you’ll look silly as a clown that mimes…
