  1. She used to sing
    “Red and Yellow and Pink and Green”
    to me on rainy days
    on the walk home from school
    when we were second grade

    I was a brave one
    talking to a girl
    but I thought this girl was worth
    the risk of getting coodies

    with all of our days together on earth passed
    I watch her from not so afar
    my love falling gently like the drizzle
    that coats her splendid umbrella
    a unheard reprise of that original love song

  2. He wore a rainbow wrist band
    a rainbow medallion
    a rainbow t-shirt may have been seen
    proudly in Hotlanta
    his stride covered the walkways
    into the underground
    yet overground
    all night bar
    and sought his rainbow dreams
    when I saw him the next day
    as I was afraid
    his dreams were dismounted
    and his rainbows lost their sparkle
    but he is surely dancing
    on colorful clouds
    as rainbows are allowed
    in a place
    where love reigns
