Transfixing Pink

Transfixing pink minutes complete
A perfect day
Aware conscious focused pleasure
Full immersion absorbing beauty

Countless pink sky nights unnoticed
A lost day
Absent minded blameless passing
Floating oblivious unconscious drifting


My favorite unrequited sports redemption story
A second (or third) chance unfolding on my TV
My beloved charismatic bombastically handsome
Dreadlocked quarterback unexpectedly appears
In orange and white with hopes of reclaiming
Reputation while stealing a win from my Birds
While drowning in the tumult of actual politics
I missed his trip from politics to rock & roll
I root for a dreamy successful orange rebirth
I need an all American mid-western come back
Feel free to start the renaissance next week

At the Soccer Game

My late summer walk across a steamy stadium lot
A thin young man in the wide hunter green head
Band restraining long thick curls brings on
Weighty full emersion nostalgia while blinking
Red, green and yellow river spanning lights
Oddly comfort presenting a holiday invitation
Sweet familiar smoke mixes with humid air
While sweat trickles down the back of the shirtless
Man walking ahead of me in camouflage shorts
And a full-sleeve tattoo swirling wildly in contrast
To the Philly Sports team logos tattooed on his calf
And ankle 76ers red white & blue and Union crest
I wonder where the Phillies are as his girlfriend
Pulls out of his reach as he drunk ambles turning
Left his incongruous billboard body mesmerizes me
The beer spilled 3 rows back that made slinky step
Progress toward my shoes whispers a sickening frat
Party aroma snapping maudlin memories back to now
At a certain point everything is evocative
