Sir John A. and the man in pink

i watch for the mundane
in a colourful
town
the man in pink
under
Sir John
two drunks rejoined
dancing the horse
before
the cannons
king street has exploded
from the
explosions
the comic book
is
born
and John street has
a corner
where the wolves
can come out
in daylight
and howl
i look for the colourful
in
the
mundane
the man in pink is asleep
Sir John
steals the bottle
for the another
take
only to feel whole
with
the daytime
vampires
making love
to the
crippled
wolves
plugged into
the outdoor
plug ins
and selling
drugs back
to the
pigeons
fed corn
from a
sloppy
guitar
rhythm
picking out
the grit
and
the stones
of a town
that once
had umbrellas
and pools
full patio grass
on the rooftops
sketched
by the architects
who
knew why
a steel mill
was sexy
in the
background
while
sipping tea
while
sir john
A
and the man
in pink
fight the
colourful
mundane
for the final
pull from the
brown
bag
