gimme shelter

long ago I hated the stones
then before long grew up
ran gauntlet after gauntlet
till one day
I wore the leather jacket
they said I would look good
in...grow your hair
and beard....
gave me skinny jeans
I picked up a wallet chain
and sunglasses
I mountian bike
and grit from the sidewalks
and road even at first gear
chopper speed
Mountian bike speed
no front fender
U get bugs...dirt
insects..thus the dark
shades....Its not just
too look cool
and cold air too
..
I was working..
had just finished at a top
end military installation
slinging fibre optics
I was up a pole
the stainless cable
lasher I was transferring
when the eclipse right
around here happened
Darkness overhead..
streetlights came on
at the horizon nothing
but light...as if a
dusk or dawn
was three sixty all
about while cold of night
decended and street
lights powered up...
I loved it...I can see
why It scared the shit
out of the ignorant

many will do what they
want in guadratic configurations
and it will suprise U
