Rainbow

A Rengay by Bill Waters & Michael Dylan Welch

“one small step” . . .
up there on the moon
old glory

the union jack
limp at the cenotaph

Olympic rings
snapping in the wind . . .
doping allegations

summer swelter —
a tattered jolly roger
on the Disney ride

beneath the French tricolor
riot police in black and white

gallery opening —
a change of weather
ripples the rainbow flag
