Vagabondage

Give me a shemagh
And a
Jacket for the rain

Let me hide
From the breeze

A pair of leggings
And (a)
Two platform shoes

So I can walk
Through puddles and streets

Red and blue
Bruisy hues
Green and grey
Colors of cuts, too

Salted wounds
Scars from
Vagabondage

Black wrapped clothing
Bandaging
City nights like
Those by Van Gogh

I feel so royal
Colored
Drab and indigo

Give me a shemagh
And a
Jacket for the rain

Let me walk
And deeply breathe

Every microgram
Of dye
Drops stain my body

My wrapping wicks
The wounds away

Give me a shemagh
And a
Jacket for the rain

I’m on the run
A vagabond

I feel so royal
Colored
Drab and indigo

These starry nights
Are ones I know

Dressed in indigo
And drab I’ll go
