The Red Pump
Lightning rumbles through this afternoon’s dream,
the day’s end crawls forward into
gauzy pink and grey.
Mist envelopes a patchwork of white bands
And yellow stripes
A wet rooster prowls this gritty asphalt
nearby red pumps primed and ready
to leave you flush for a price
and so it seems more the nightmare
For in a dream there is peace until dawn,
yet all dreams end.
Tommorow at daylight, when the cock crows
the war begins anew.

🙂 at your title. Very cool and colorful shot. He’s a beauty.
Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: To fill ‘er up, of course! 😉
This is something I haven’t seen very often! Very nice catch. Beautiful rooster. How come in VFXY this is called “A Rooster with Gas” which I found more than amusing and here it’s called “The Red Pump”? Though perhaps less eloquent, I’m voting for that first title. Really fun shot!
Excellent frame! Beautiful cock…:)
Wonderful and funny picture! Great Timing eddie!
