Slipped Out of Her Jeans by Michael WellsDo not think the sky is blue in jeans on its own account.

Hold up in the atmosphere whispering away clouds—

these are extremes that push back the rain.  These are

the litmus test that decides the political fortunes of

of agro-business.  Someone is micro-managing the rain.


There have been conspiracy theories to debunk.

Who has the time? So many theories; I’m still working

the JFK thing over in my head; the grassy knoll,

book depository. The rumor Jack Ruby didn’t care

for movies and never looked good in a tie.


Hanging on to things is a problem.  Right now

I haven’t room to hold some of the new suppositions

In my thought long enough to even weigh in

on merits or demerits, facts or fancy.


The sky has slipped out of her jeans and into flannels.

Big fluffy stuff, change is coming under suspicion.

Nothing is ever just as simple as coincidence.
