Unsure Rainbows

by Regis Boff

One eyeblink,
shakes a tear into the open bazaar
of embarrassed rainbows.
An unsure man
drifting backward down the quiet slope
of abandoned pride.
The last ledge of the steps he is tumbling down
and this woman
deciding it all.
Be careful of falling down those stairs.
At the bottom,
you will find you are not a man,
just another unsure rainbow
in love.images
