Rainbow Over the Desert Sun

“The only rainbow I ever saw over the desert

came off of an overheated jacked-up 68 Chevy Nova.

That car had the prettiest pin striping.

We put towels in the ice cooler to soak up water

so we would cool off once the heat of the day came on.

Out there in that desert heat,

everything takes on new appearances.

I’ll tell ya.

I remember those twisted rainbow pin stripes

started dancing right off that car

and turning all kinds of colors.

A real rainbow mirage.”
