At least for today black has disappointed me.
Everything in it has come down a sham:
The Ace of Spades
The night sky
The iconography of a black leather jacket
Even facts right there in black and white.
At least for today white has let me down.
Everything in it is less than it might have been
Crisp white cotton shirts
Even the possibilities of a blank sheet.
At least for today, I’m with the real cowboys,
Not the idealists portrayed in the movies
At home with the dust and dirt of reality.
