It's a pity: / this twenty-first century city; / an ascetic plea, / the Monday night moans // over "Naima" on the hi-fi, / I intone / the mantra of an ex- / Catholic boy all alone, pushing away the fits / at my fingertips // A sleeping scream, / a tape-delay frenzy, / I mark the weeks--have you heard / each tone // of Molina in the headphones, / pale, sick and alone / shedding all our old skin, / driving each other home--It's resurrection, kid, / are you listening? // The climax is / just the beginning, with a sheet of sound, / talkin' long dark blues // old ways and lost days / stripped dead from the bone, / magnolias and sopranos / engulf me alone / to keep us closer still, / spinning "Feel"


from Old Black on the Elk, released October 2, 2015
