screamin jay hawkins

Screamin’ Jay’s operatic sexuality

Nina’s deep contralto of pain

Fogerty’s spooky guitar vibrato

Repeatedly playing

How many versions owned?

In our minds an echo

As we cast a synchronous spell

And they collide

Then weave into a bow

So perfectly knotting us together

Into a welcome tether…
