LIFE’S TRINITY

 

*Scroll down for 2 YouTube videos (The Browns and The Beatles)*

On a sunny morning

Little Jimmy Brown is born

While Eleanor Rigby scoops up her wedding rice

Jimmy Brown marries his true love

Father McKenzie darns his hole-y socks

As Jimmy takes a running jump into heaven

Eleanor later following his footsteps

Life in song

Born. Wed. Dead.

MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT DELIGHT

nowhere man sheet music in fog

A melancholy two ante meridiem

Dog-stressed

Waning Moon

Mercury magnetizing the universe

Spinning backwards in retrograde

No relief from

Reading, games, social media

Grab my ukulele and try playing

Nowhere Man for the first time

Lack of talent doesn’t discourage me

Because the top-of-the-head-blowing-off feeling

Disappears

As the Beatles’

Long-ago words and melody

Tranquilize the jittery soul

Of this Somewhere Woman

I am…

And I rock…
