like a big beautiful rainbow

the gifted child screams
in rage and sadness and frustration
at all the people there to help

the lothario with a limp dick
sits back on the pillows lights
a cigarette and watches the smoke

the artist cuts his meat in silence
at an upper east side dinner
table full of suits and money

and tomorrow we will all begin
again to fail in different ways
all the broken roads of life
fanning out in arching rays
spreading colors through the sky.
