odd: daytime Velvets
songs about the real tough drugs
in the church office

Gary Davis plays
the blues (quietly) in church
from beyond the grave

“Tennessee Jed” plays
as I wait in the drive-through

at the laundromat
spinning some live Grateful Dead
while my clothes go ’round

POEM: the moment I knew for sure I liked David Rovics

the moment I knew for sure I liked David Rovics

I remember he finished singing the line
“Coke is the drink of the death squads”
picked up a Coke, looked at the audience
said, “Hey, it’s a complicated world”

POEM: Revenge!

Revenge!

Mingus! Dolphy!
Elderly people doing yoga!
Park pavilions full of
downward dogs & the upper class.
The Buick owners realigning their chakras
before heading off to brunch.
Everyone has a dog or else no one does.
There’s ozone in the air but the sun is out.
Where’s the promised thunder?
The desert is a dirty liar.
The bass clarinet will have to do.

Cat Stevens’ voice breaks
when he sings the word “listen.”
Hummingbird flies off.
