Johnny Cash, Man in White.
Who is the Man in White?
Johnny Cash, the same
man, only different outfit.
I’m used to seeing him
in black.
Hymn singer, chef, saint?
Folsom Prison visitor,
he who walks the line,
falling in a ring of fire.
A man in white,
partial to June,
country singer
Chevy driver.
He has changed
from black to white,
his tan more prominent.
Beneath nighttime stars
energetic twinkling
full moon light,
nature’s pristine raiment.
He is Cash, famous Johnny,
in black so known
in white less known,
his Yin and Yang.
Complimentary dress?
Or shocking transformation.
A sawbuck, two sides
of the same coin yet
not counterfeit currency.
Still Cash.
