Really wish you could see the socks.

  • Really wish you could see the socks.
What you can’t see in the picture are the matching tie-dye socks. He appeared out of the crowd like a mirage. A summertime American stallion. An upright, completely matched, Venus of Urbino, draining the vacationed day of all pleasures possible. Not a single cell of his body contained stress.

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is an Eden of spinning rides and deep fried foods. Hardening arteries and centrifugal forces work, breach, and churn. In the Eden, this matching tie-dye man was Adam and Eve. The amusement park had speakers hung on poles throughout the grounds playing ’70s and ’80s hits. The song that came on when I saw the American Stallion Tie-Die Man was Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon.” For some reason, it was perfect.

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night / And wouldnt you love to love her? Takes through the sky like a bird in flight / And who will be her lover?

All your life youve never seen a woman taken by the wind. Would you stay if she promised you Heaven? Will you ever win?

  • "All your life you've never seen a woman taken by the wind. Would you stay if she promised you Heaven? Will you ever win?"

Taken by, taken by the sky / Taken by, taken by the sky / Taken by, taken by the sky.
  • T. Moorman
  • "Taken by, taken by the sky / Taken by, taken by the sky / Taken by, taken by the sky."
