gut bucket blues

wanda
wild whisky
voiced woman
of the mountain
ballads of coal towns
train songs and beaches
come sing with me
this sound of Bach
on the breeze....
bamboo and wind
still strummen your guitar
and me, singing
and plunken
the bass....
gut bucket
blues

 

 

 

 

Kyoka

 

O.J. said
they were thieves
stole his trophy
heistmen
with guns

 

 

 

have no eye teeth
so I can't see
what I'm saying
only plastic in my mouth
so falsely playing

 

 

 

filling out
medical forms
name, age, sex ?
no not in
a long while

 

 

 

heat waves
of the high desert
fill the air you breath
ah..a shady place
there in your mind

 

 

 

 

Tanka

 

morning sun
shining through
the old forest
me on the shadow side
of the moon

 

 

a lazy moon
lingers
as the sun
touches
clouds around it

 

 

one side
of the trees
lit by the sun
moon chill
on the other
