SPELLING

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…
