in a hot-tea-buzz.
in the A.M. quiet.
10,000 lines flung at the walls
in search of "The Sticky"
that will coagulate those
fumbling echos into a song
(the song-the song-where is the song?)
lacking the catalyst
that melts the pieces
into the piece
two lines crawl out
-three and then four
-a verse- a chorus
-(sleep be gone
-it's nearly done)
A song. A song. A song!!
New-born and clumsy,
spanked into life
by the love of the art.
Taking first breaths
in painfully new lungs
-whole and living.
It might be good
Ah, but the poet's ear hears
things that are not there
and his eye is blind
to things that are.
So let the people decide.
Give it to the people.
Sure, the critic waits to shove
it into a nice neat pigeon-hole
It's a people song.
Of, by and for
-it's not a manifesto-
I don't wanta say how it was
-how it could be
-how it should be.
-I wanta say how it is -.
Well - is it?
I bring you a mirror,
not a pulpit.
Someone needs to say,
"yeah, I've felt that way, too."
Maybe to find a little strength
in a common weakness
out of this sad
we are all playing in.
These songs came that way
in search of the guts.
And now I give them to you.
I wrote these songs for you.
