OTHER POETS LINES

 

Leonard on the sound track

Joanie in the parking lot

Irving dead and gone

trashed by his kids

Paul in the bubble and going to Graceland

some are taking Berlin

some are living in the canyon

listening for Billy’s marching feet

all echoing in memory

with songs that tug at the heart strings

while my own is out there

without comment or applause

and like my pictures of old blues guys

easily forgotten

and through a Tuesday of anticipation

waiting for a distant Friday

while this blank white page teases me

for more easily forgotten words

fresh from an overnight bed

glad my eyes opened

and found an empty page

and a pen

so at least running ahead of my history

I can start again

and work with magic of the times

reading, listening, remembering

knocking on heavens door

and

other poets lines
