GOING GREEN AT THE 211 GALLERY by Jeff Callaway (Texas Outlaw Poet)

GOING GREEN AT THE 211 GALLERY by Jeff Callaway

 

On the Seventh

at seven

we all came alive

we came one

we came all

one Saturday night

the goal was to Go

Green and it just

felt right

to paint canvases green

that once were white

like born on a green light

Daddy-O

I thought I might drop

green words in lines

and hoped they might

rhyme and also be on time

I’m the Texas Outlaw Poet
I come correct
and have also come a
country mile

busted mc’s like lemons

I’m Tequila

salt

limes

and then Talkington’s Texas Radio

tuned in the dial

with psychedelic

country style

we all

kicked off our shoes

and the blues

and stayed a while

as the walls breathed

fine local art in lime green

and artists looked on

through dilated

in 3D

green eyes

and then all of a sudden

I realized

Athens, Texas was once

so named to be the

cultural epicenter of East

Texas

and so the 211 Gallery

welcomes us

so come

you poets

come painters

come musicians alike

let’s rise from the ashes

like a phoenix

and fight

for that long

faded dream

that once made

Athens come

to burn so

bright

for all of Texas

to see

how bout

another round

of Come And Take It

catered drinks

and one for me

and a toast

to an East Texas

art movement

to honor

our

ancestry.
