The yellow of morning, whiskey.

The yellow of evening, gin.

Jaundice, the yellow eye,

a pontoon liver, cheek and chin—

A man signals his direst need,

a yellow flag in a yellow breeze.

The yellow of urine, of marigolds,

flowers of the dead.

The rain-soaked cliffs turn

the river, first yellow, then red.

A yellow sky, to complement

the mountains, purple as Lent.

The silhouette of a rider, heading west

toward that great horizon.

A yellow moon on an

always receding ocean:

How can it not come back again?

As if on stilts, he walks

on toothpick legs, a bird, 

within sight of alligators.

A dispassionate clockwork waits

to record the inevitable yellow end.
